BA (Hons) History
Why study History?
History at Newman concentrates not only on what happened, but why these things happened and how we know they did. This approach explores the factors influencing historical events and gives a greater understanding of how society has developed the way it has. A rich and varied course, History at Newman will take you on a voyage of discovery which will span the origins of humankind to the burning issues of the globalised present.
What does the course cover?
During your first year you will have the opportunity to study a broad selection of periods - from Britain's tumultuous history including the settlement of the British Isles to Victorian Britain. The history of the West Midlands region will be given individual attention. You will also be introduced to historical methods of research, such as archaeology, the use of genetic evidence, archives and fieldwork.
The second year of study brings an international perspective to history. You will explore the history of Europe from Ancient Greek times and the making of the modern world. By the third year, you will study the nature of history itself, and can choose from options including African history, film history, church history or the literature of the past. In addition, you will compose, research and write your own research project based on an aspect of history of your choice.
The work placement in the second year will highlight some of the careers which a degree in History can lead to, such as working in museums, media or tourism.
