Students will gain knowledge of a range of chronological periods, as well as develop their ability to analyse change over time and comparative, cross-cultural and abstract concepts.In Ancient History students will examine the history, art and culture of the Greek and Roman worlds, with a choice of themes in social, cultural or religious history. You will have access to the facilities of the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology to help you develop research and presentation skills. In History, you can choose from medieval, early-modern and modern periods and develop your historical and historiographical skills.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
