Course summary

The BA in Ancient History and History offers courses ranging from ancient Greece and Rome to the modern world, and over a wide geographical area, including Britain, Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia. Many students find joint honours degrees both stimulating and rewarding as they observe similarities and differences between the two subjects. Often there are complementary issues and perspectives and skills that link the subjects, be they critical analysis, historical contexts or recent research. The programme offers a balance between modules covering specific historical periods and those that examine broad social and cultural topics, such as warfare, politics, gender, slavery, kingship, religion, art, medicine and science.It aims to develop your knowledge and critical understanding of the political, social, economic, and cultural structures of past societies, and to cultivate the skills of the historian, namely, the ability to assess evidence critically, to evaluate different interpretations of the evidence, to construct arguments on the basis of evidence, and to express opinions cogently in speech and in writing. We deliver a degree which offers a challenging and diverse programme of modules, supported by a friendly atmosphere and excellent staff-student relationships within the School.
