Course programme

Students take 120 credits per year composed of core and optional modules, which allows you to design your own intellectual journey while maintaining a strong grasp of the fundamentals of History. (Please note that 30 credits equal one unit in the table below)

In the first year, students take introductory modules only, moving on to intermediate-level modules in the second year, and then to advanced modules in their final year.

How to structure your programme?

In choosing your modules, some students choose to focus mainly on one region (Africa, Near and Middle East, South, Southeast or East Asia) or topic (e.g. Islam, violence and warfare, gender, modernity). Others choose to range more broadly, exploring various topics and regions. In the Joint Honours programme, whether you aim to develop an in-depth knowledge of one particular region or put more emphasis on the exploration of particular themes and problems and explore them in a comparative context will likely depend on the choice of your second subject.

The Combined Honours degree allows great flexibility. A three-year programme, for which you will need a minimum of 150 credits in your first degree subject, will typically look like this:

Year 1 - You must choose four modules, including:

  • H101 Approaching History – the compulsory core introductory module (30 credits)

And three further modules, either

  • two modules from the other subject
  • OR 100-level introductory History module (30 credits)
  • OR one module from the other subject and one approved open option

Year 2 - You must choose four modules, including:

  • H201 Historical Research: Approaches, Methods, Design (30 credits) – core
  • 30 credits from among the 200-level thematic and regional History modules,

And two further modules, either

  • two modules from the other subject,
  • OR one module from the other subject and one approved open option

Year 3 - You must choose four modules, including:

  • one module chosen from the 300-level modules – core

And three further modules, chosen from among

  • the 400-level 'Special Subject' dissertation linked to the 300-level module, OR a 500-level Independent Study Project, OR an intermediate (200-level) History module,
  • modules from the other subject
  • and an approved open option
