Course summary

Sex, scandal, death and magic. History is far from dull! History is not just about the past; it is a dynamic force that informs how we comprehend the present and how we envision and shape our future. Understanding the connections between past and present is therefore essential to understanding ourselves and the world in which we live. Our history degree will offer you new perspectives on the past. You’ll examine history from the close of the European middle ages to the present day. USW's history degree covers British and European history, Atlantic histories linking Europe, Africa and America, and aspects of global history.We place emphasis on developing your skills in gathering and evaluating evidence, and learning how to build arguments that are rational and well presented. You’ll be taught by staff who are internationally recognised researchers. This informs what you learn in the classroom, so you’ll benefit from the latest historical findings. Staff research interests are wide ranging and include the Atlantic slave trade, seaside resorts and leisure activities, the First World War, East German communism, Welsh Quakers, and British and American music festivals.
