Course summary

Study 3,000 years of history, from ancient Greece to Britain in the 20th century. You will cover a full range of historical periods and societies and develop an excellent understanding of the contemporary world.Right from the beginning of this BA History degree, you will learn to question and decipher narratives about historical events, and will assess why history is constantly being rewritten. The freedom to explore a full variety of human societies and environments is complemented in this course by the flexibility to pursue your own academic interests. By the time you graduate, you will have honed your critical and analytic skills on a wide range of topics and will become a well-rounded graduate, with an exceptional understanding of how the world has evolved.The BA History degree at Roehampton introduces you to the full range of human activity, from the classical period to the study of medicine and revolution in the twentieth century via the study of medieval societies. Social, economic, political, cultural and women’s history comprise the five main areas of specialisation, but instead of placing these themes in exclusive categories of medieval, modern and contemporary history, we have designed modules which either cut across traditional chronologies or give considerable emphasis to a multi-disciplinary approach. You are as likely to be studying a Roman vase or imaginative literature as a telegram or oral evidence in order to bring meaning to the past and to understand its relationship with the present. You’ll also have the opportunity to study how history engages and interacts with disciplines such as politics, philosophy, economics, sociology, archaeology and anthropology.Our flexible modular system allows you to shape your studies around what interests you the most, and our research-led teaching means you will be supported by academics whose expertise is as varied as it is interesting - they will bring history to life by inspiring stimulating and exciting debates.The course balances vital academic studies of history today with personalised preparation for the 21st-century workplace - 96% of students are in work or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE 2016 result). You will leave knowing how to identify, select, organise and interpret information, write analytically and conduct research-based activity.Our campus is set in a landscape rich in history, and its advantageous location allows you to engage with London’s cultural and historical heritage. Learning is also taken outside the classroom, with field trips to places such as the British Museum integrated into your course. Plus, our work placement module could see you take part in an archaeological dig or volunteering in a museum.
