Subject

History

History at UEA is taught by experienced, internationally renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, so your learning will be at the forefront of the historical debate. We have particular strengths in British, European, Russian and Soviet history, the Atlantic world, the Middle East and Landscape.Whether youre interested in all areas of historical study or looking forward to developing new specialisms, in your second and third years you will be able to tailor your degree by choosing from a huge range of optional modules. And youll be able to broaden your horizons even further with modules from other disciplines including English literature, languages and politics.Whichever path you choose, youll develop a knowledge of the deep connections between history, memory and the past and the present. You will learn to explore and understand the forces that shape the modern world, be they political, economic, social or cultural. You will come to understand how knowledge is constructed and manipulated how history is written and you will engage with its interpretation and debate.**Course Structure****Year 1**Your first year will give you a solid foundation in the main periods in British and European history. Compulsory modules will cover British and European history from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, and youll also be introduced to more specialist historical themes, such as witchcraft. In our History, Controversy and Debate module youll explore established methodologies and theories of historical enquiry. Through all of these youll develop your skills in research, analysis and debate.**Year 2**In year two youll be given the option to specialise in your historic focus or keep it broad. Youll have access to a wide range of modules offered by the School of History, covering topics ranging from medieval history to the late twentieth and early twenty-first century.There are no compulsory modules this year, so its completely flexible and will allow you to tailor your learning to the topics that most interest you, all the while honing your skills of academic enquiry and argument.You can also choose to study abroad in your second year, learn a new language, and/or broaden your studies by taking modules chosen from those offered by other disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.**Year 3**In your final year youll specialise even further and master the intellectual skills required of a historian. Youll select one specialist subject from a range that typically includes topics such as Henry VIII, Stalin and Stalinism, and Sixties Britain. Each subject will be led by an academic currently researching the specific area so its like reading their books before theyve been written.In addition to your chosen area of focus youll study two advanced modules, covering subjects such as the crusades, the medieval outlaw in history, and legend and youth in modern Europe. Alternatively, you could opt to take just one advanced module and also write a dissertation on a historical topic of your choice.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

History is a very popular subject (although numbers have fallen of late) — in 2015, over 10,000 UK students graduated in a history-related course. Obviously, there aren't 11,000 jobs as historians available every year, but history is a good, flexible degree that allows graduates to go into a wide range of different jobs, and consequently history graduates have an unemployment rate comparable to the national graduate average. Many — probably most — jobs for graduates don't ask for a particular degree to go into them and history graduates are well set to take advantage. That's why so many go into jobs in the finance industry, human resources, marketing, PR and events management, as well as the more obvious roles in education, welfare and the arts. Around one in five history graduates went into further study last year. History and teaching were the most popular further study subjects for history graduates, but law, journalism, and politics were also popular postgraduate courses.
