    BA (Hons) History is an exciting new degree. At its core is Modern British History, with a media focus. It will provide you with a firm grounding in the academic study of history and an appreciation of what it means to be an historian in the digital age. It will also equip you with professional and practical skills to enhance your employability.

    The course encompasses social, cultural and political history within British but also European and global contexts. Because of its unique position within a media school, there is a strong focus on public history, on archives and on the history of media and communications. This specialised environment means that you will have access to television, radio and on-line resources both for uncovering and presenting history and you will also be introduced to a wide range of heritage and history organisations.
