Course summary

From the polite conversation of the eighteenth-century coffee-house to the agitation of twentieth-century acid-house, this course gives you the opportunity to explore modern British history, with a media twist. Rooted in social, cultural and political history, there is also a strong focus on Europe as well as wider global contexts. The course sits within our Faculty of Media & Communication which means that, as well as studying history in the traditional sense, you will be using newspapers, on-line sites, sound recordings, television and film as a way of exploring a broad range of topics.As a student on this course, you'll: - Have the opportunity to engage with public history by working with a range of outside agencies including museums, archives and heritage organisations- For your final year project, you'll work in small teams on a proposal for a public history event, including working with organisations such as Wimborne Minster, Dorset History Centre, Christchurch Cathedral and Bournemouth Civic Society- In addition to traditional essays and exams, you'll be assessed through exhibitions, posters, websites, podcasts, blogs and even a mock peace conference- 96% of final year students said they received sufficient advice and guidance in relation to the course (National Student Survey 2019).- Make invaluable employment connections and add valuable experience to your CV in either a four week or 30-week placement. Work with organisations such as Dorset History Centre, Huntley Film Archives and ABA Antiques.
