The History with Philosophy BA (Hons) will enable you to engage with two of the major traditional methods of viewing the world. You will learn about how people have lived and interacted, from Roman Empire Britain to modern day America. You will do this through reflecting on the complex and often contradictory information about the past that is available to us now, and studying the practice and applications of the historical discipline itself. You will be able to supplement your study of history by learning to create rigorous arguments around classic and modern texts with precision and accuracy and learning to assess historical views about the constitution of the world and how we ought to act within it.

Teaching & learning

You will typically experience an average of 8 or more hours of high-quality contact time in each teaching week, in considerably smaller groups than are the norm for UK institutions at the undergraduate level, if you choose to study History as your major subject. The exact number of contact hours will depend on your choice of minor subject and any optional courses. Read more

Your contact hours will include a mixture of teaching methods best suited to the subject matter and to achieve the learning outcomes for each individual course. Teaching formats include small group tutorials, seminars, and lectures of between 10 and 60 students for your degree courses.
