Course Modules

This is a structured programme of taught modules, designed to develop historical and archaeological understanding and critical skills.

Our new survey course options will introduce you to the key themes you need to know about when studying the past.

In parallel with these cutting'edge surveys, we offer a range of compulsory 'How to' modules which bring you together with academic staff to explore the study of the past and develop the skills needed to research and write history. Every year, as you build your studies and progress towards your degree, you will take one of these courses, helping you to develop your own unique perspective on the past.

Both the survey courses and our ‘How To’ courses run annually so that it doesn't matter whether you study part'time or full'time with us ' you will be able to make the most of them.

The programme consists of 11 modules.

In Year 1, you take three compulsory modules and choose one Level 4 option module.

In Year 2, you take one compulsory module and choose three Level 5 option modules.

In Year 3, you choose two Level 6 option modules and write a dissertation.
