In the autumn term you take two Histories and Contexts (20 credits) modules, choosing from a range of options. These examine either a theme or an issue in relation to a particular period or region, or a way in which historians have approached studying the past. Each is taught through an integrated programme of two lectures and one discussion group a week. You are assessed by means of an essay.
You will typically be able to choose from around eight options. The options on offer vary from year to year. Please note, modules may change to reflect the latest academic thinking and expertise of our staff.
The following list provides details of Histories and Contexts modules offered in recent years:
