Course summary

Our degree course has a distinctive emphasis on using literature, history and archaeology in the study of the ancient world, and we offer a range of expertise. The chronological sweep is wide, from around 3000BC to 1500AD and you can study Europe, the Mediterranean and Asian civilisations. One aspect of study is social history: how people in the past lived, worked, traded and enjoyed their leisure. Studying such a diverse range of societies and cultures enables you to analyse and reflect on the complex relationship between the Ancient and Medieval worlds.**Why study this course?** **Impressive employability** - 100% of our graduates in work or doing further study 15 months after the course (Graduate Outcomes Survey). Our graduates enter a wide range of professions, including accountancy, charity work, housing, law, publishing, politics and teaching.**Excellent reputation** - History is ranked 11th in the The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide.**Outstanding student experience** - At Birmingham we believe that teaching hours should be complemented by a wide-range of academic opportunities and social occasions. Join our history department community you'll have access to, among many other things, a student experience team who co-ordinate performances, talks, trips, podcasts, quizzes and celebrations and bespoke academic writing advice. **Broad portfolio** - We are very conscious that a true appreciation of the ancient and medieval world requires as varied an approach as possible. At the beginning of your degree course you will study broad time periods and issues but you will get to focus on particular topics of your choosing all the way through. **Resources** - We have excellent library facilities with the University Library situated by the History Department and we have the Hilton and Styles libraries in the Arts Building. The Cadbury Research Library is home to the University of Birmingham’s historic collections of rare books, manuscripts, archives, photographs and associated artefacts. The collections which have been built up over a period of 120 years consist of over 200,000 rare printed books including significant incunabula, as well as over 4 million unique archive and manuscript collections.
