Course summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. This degree combines the study of British and international history and enables you to explore a broad timespan from the early modern to the contemporary. You’ll approach history from many different directions, and a rich range of themes are present in our teaching: cultural history, economic and social history, gender history, international history, and political history. You’ll learn to analyse evidence, formulate questions and put forward your own arguments and interpretations as you become a historian yourself.We are attuned to the needs of the graduate jobs market. With this in mind, we offer a range of employability modules which aim to combine direct workplace experience and project management with the wider qualities and transferable skills that the study of History necessarily entails: the capacity for rigorous research; critical judgement; intellectual independence. Our history graduates have gone on to very successful careers in teaching, museum, library and archive work. You can choose to support the international dimension of your History degree and to enhance your international career opportunities by learning a language or travelling abroad, with awards and bursaries available through our Worldwise Learning Centre. You’ll have the opportunity to spend a semester overseas. Most commonly history students choose an American institution, although you can study in a range of European countries through the ERASMUS programme.
