Course summary

History

The History degree programmes are all about sharing a passion for history and its relevance in present-day societies and cultures.

Heritage

Heritage (BA) offers students a programme that will explore different aspects of Heritage and the Heritage-related agencies, institutions and subjects across a range of discipline including history, archaeology and philosophy.

Course Overview

The History programme at UWTSD allows students to explore many different political, social, economic, military and cultural aspects of history. It combines a study of change over time in broad sweeping survey modules introducing key aspects of the medieval and modern world, with more focused modules on topics such as Norman society and Crusades, the First World War and 1980s Britain.

Each module is delivered in small groups and with a hands-on, immersive approach. The teaching is research-led, rooted in the professional interests and expertise of the lecturers. Students will encounter multiple approaches to and source materials for understanding the past, with a particular focus on utilising the onsite archive of manuscript and printed primary sources. This results in a rounded and comprehensive programme of study which grounds students in the requisite theories, methodologies and practices of the discipline of history.

This programme in Heritage (BA) will offer an innovative approach to study that combines an exploration of general and broadly based Heritage issues, with more specialist or particular aspects of the field.

The programme will equip students with an understanding and appreciation of the wider field of Heritage, which includes a compulsory work placement at level 5 and time in the Roderic Bowen Library and Archives at level 6.

This provides students with both an attractive approach to study as well as equipping them with an appropriate set of skills and understandings applicable to a broad range of employments in the Heritage sector or cultural industries.

Assessment

The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1,000 to 4,000 words in length, document analysis, book/ journal reviews, short reports and reflective journals, time tests, seen and unseen exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.

Career Opportunities

You will develop powers of analysis, logical thought and evidence-based argument within a supportive and encouraging environment. These skills of communication, understanding, analysis and self-management will provide you with a passport into employment and/or further study. The degree in History equips students for jobs in fields such as museum and archive work, journalism, law, banking, local politics, all types of administrative work, marketing and advertising, and teaching. At Lampeter, we have a strong track-record of helping students progress to postgraduate study – both at MA and PhD level.
