Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) - BA (Hons)
Study for a History degree at Worcester and you can learn history as it's being written. Your lecturers will be the authors of some of the books you're using - and you'll even get the chance to contribute to their research. And, as well as benefiting from the latest thinking, you can learn through a work placement - perhaps in archives, museums, local community groups, schools, or a National Trust property. So, you understand the relevance of history to our culture and working life.
Throughout your History degree, you'll learn in small, informal groups. You'll get a lot of individual support in a very friendly atmosphere.
