Course summary

History: History is an inspiring, dynamic and relevant subject. It is always expanding and adapting to absorb new ideas and ask new questions of the past. Studying history will also help you develop practical skills valued by employers, such as the ability to collect and analyse data and to construct a clear argument.

You will gain both sound historical knowledge and a range of transferable analytical and presentational skills. With these you will be able to tackle a variety of career options centring on administration and public leadership, for example, in personnel departments in the private sector, the civil service andlocal government as well as in a range of directly transferable vocations. Bangor History graduates have in recent years gained careers in the heritage industry, commerce, law, teaching and the armed forces.

English Literature: This course offers students the opportunity to study texts and authors from an exceptionally wide range of English and American literature. During their degree these works are studied in a variety of ways, some emphasising, for example, the social or political context in which a text was produced; others are studied with a more linguistic or stylistic approach. The English Literature course aims to develop their skills in reading literature and to introduce them to new critical techniques and ways of studying literary texts. Through the study of English literature they will develop critical capacities and a range of invaluable intellectual and interpersonal skills: the ability to evaluate and interpret material and the capacity to explain it logically, orally or on paper, the ability to work independently and as a member of a group, to manage their own time and to work to deadlines set by themselves and others. These are skills which are sought by employers in many fields. With a good degree in History course, combining sound historical knowledge and a range of analytical and presentational skills, they will be able to tackle a variety of career options centring on administration and public leadership, for example, in personnel departments in privately owned industry, the civil service and local government as well as in a range of directly transferable vocations. Bangor History graduates have in recent years gained careers in commerce, law, teaching and the armed forces.
