Course summary

At Essex we’re about social conscience, wondering why, and understanding the bigger picture. We teach you to find your own critical voice and view history through the eyes of different people, telling hidden histories that might otherwise be forgotten.This degree allows you to explore challenging questions about the impact of political, social and cultural change on individuals, social groups and regions. From African-American slavery to Stalin’s Russia—from households in Essex to witchcraft in Germany—from the history of disease to revolutions in China, we urge you to explore the past in order to better understand the present.On the four-year MHist Version of this course (five years if taking a year abroad or placement year), you develop the same key skills for History as on the BA, as well as investigating more advanced topics by achieving a masters-level qualification. You’ll have the flexibility to choose from a wide range of optional modules across different topics and areas of specialism.You are taught by award-winning academics from all over the world: our corridors are truly cosmopolitan. Our students love us too – 92% of our History students expressed overall satisfaction with their course (NSS 2019).With this degree, you will also undertake a year abroad. Studying abroad will offer you tons of experience in a different environment. Not only will it enrich your academic experience, it will also give you the chance to get to know another country and culture in a way that's not always possible as a tourist.
