Course summary

The BA History with a Language gives you the opportunity to study two subjects that will help you to make sense of an increasingly multicultural world, and will also boost your employability and gain an international perspective.

Through our diverse and inclusive History curriculum you will learn about an array of cultures and identities. What links our work is our focus on people’s history and everyday lives. This is represented strongly in our first year programme, which will give you an insight into the making of the modern world through exploration of faith, magic and medicine, campaigns for freedom and equality, Africa and the world, and America from Hamilton to Trump. These courses will be complimented by learning a language to better understand the culture of the country.

You can further your understanding of other countries’ cultures and customs by studying one of five languages – French, German, Japanese, Mandarin or Spanish. Having a language in your degree title gives you an immediate international edge, whilst also making you a more confident, capable and culturally aware graduate.

The combination of History with a Language offers further opportunities in the final year of your studies when you have the option of writing a dissertation on a topic of your choosing. Previous Language students have chosen to work on the history of the country whose language they are studying. The ability to read non-English sources widens the scope for potential topics.
