If you are interested in learning about British, American and European History you will be well catered for. We are also proud to offer the opportunity to specialise in areas that are either unique or extremely uncommon in History degrees delivered in the UK. For example, our modules include; photographic history; the history of sport and leisure; South-East Asia and ethnicity/migration/racism; and history and employability.Our languages pathway allows you to study either French or Mandarin Chinese alongside your existing degree. You will take a 30 credit beginners’ or post-GCSE module in your chosen language, which will equate to two hours of language classes and one hour of cultural studies per week. The cultural awareness class introduces you to the history, culture, institutions, politics and literature of your chosen language. In the final year there may be an opportunity to study for specific purposes e.g. languages for business.
