This course concentrates on different geographical scales of history, including local and global perspectives. It allows students the opportunity to engage with a range of approaches to the study of history, examining a range of historical subjects from the early middle ages to the present.
Normally a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in a related subject or professional experience in the area of study. Suitable applicants are required to attend an interview.
Core modules: approaches to the past (introductory module); research methods and skills; independent study presentation. As well as the core modules, students choose three special study modules. Special Studies modules include: The history of Anglo-Saxon Wessex; medieval government; female rule in the pre-modern Mediterranean gender and history 1500 present; medicine and society in southern England 1550-1700; Tudor rebellions; the �Fifteen-Year War� and public memory in post-war Japan; �The Good War�: the United States and World War II; Soviet history through film, reading and writing; the Holocaust: Historiography, memory and representation, 1945 to the present, the culture of defeat.

The dissertation is a substantial piece of independent research with full tutorial support. For this, students are required to write around 20,000 words on a subject of their choice covered by their study.
