Course summary

The University of Buckingham is:o Home of the 2-year degree – less cost and more focuso Top for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide)o Consistently ranked in the top 5 in England for Student Satisfaction (National Student Survey)o Small group teaching focused – excellent student:staff ratio o Flexible – start your course in September or JanuaryHistory is one of the five most popular subjects among UK university students, and with good reason. Having a historical perspective enables people to make sense of today’s rapidly changing world. Employers like it because history teaches you to think for yourself, to work under pressure, and to construct a coherent argument from the evidence. Historical research has never been more exciting than it is today, with the internet making available so many treasures from the archives.This BA in History has been carefully designed and fine-tuned by Buckingham’s team of experienced and high-calibre historians. It offers an outline and conceptual modules which concentrate on the period from 1800 to the present day – though we do study some earlier periods too from the 1500s onwards too. It covers, in particular, empires, the rise in political polarisation, World Wars and the shaping of our modern political systems, whilst considering the relationship between ideology and the historical process.Students progress to study the history of history and to reflect on historical method. In the last part of the course, we study historical documents and texts and develop research and writing skills through a long essay and a dissertation. So the programme not only teaches history; it also teaches you to think historically and to research and write history.**Study in Florence**A unique feature of this degree is the opportunity to spend your first term of study in Florence. Based at the British Institute of Florence, in a Renaissance palace in the city centre, you will explore the history, culture, art and architecture of this beautiful city during this time. This is available to students that start their degree in September (as opposed to January), and additional fees apply.**Flexible Honours**Make your degree as unique as you. As one of our flexible honours degrees, you have the freedom to tailor your History degree to reflect your interests and passions by combining it with a wide range of other subjects taught here at the University. This means that when you graduate you will have a highly personalised degree that will suit you and your aspirations perfectly.At the end of the degree this equates to having 210-240 units in History and 120-150 units in other subjects of your choice. If you study 90 units or more from a single subject, you will be awarded with a combined honours degree (for example, if you study over 90 units in Politics you will be awarded with the degree History with Politics).Availability of modules for Flexible Honours choices are subject to timetabling constraints, minimum and maximum class sizes and any agreed pre-requisite modules.
