  • Course description
    From the polite conversation of the eighteenth century coffeehouse to the agitation of twentieth century acid-house, this course gives you the opportunity to explore modern British history, with a media twist. Rooted in social, cultural and political history, there is also a strong focus on Europe as well as wider global contexts. The course sits within our Faculty of Media & Communication which means that, as well as studying history in the traditional sense, you will be using newspapers, online sites, sound recordings, television and film as a way of exploring a broad range of topics. Public history is an important aspect of the course and throughout your degree you will work with a range of outside agencies such as museums, archives and heritage organisations. Besides essays and exams, our assessment methods include exhibitions, posters, websites, podcasts and blogs. To complement your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to put theory into practice with a work placement of either four or 30 weeks. Not only will this add valuable experience to your CV, it will also help you to use the transferable skills you have already learned and ultimately improve your career options. You will be joining an active history community that combines both the social and the scholarly, with a lively History Society and membership of our internationally renowned Centre for Media History.
