On this challenging and innovative course, we introduce you to five centuries of British, European and imperial history. Incorporating social, cultural and political history, we teach you about key events and movements, and how ordinary people experienced them. You will develop an in-depth knowledge of the past, and analyse how historians have interpreted it. We'll introduce you to the best methods of historical research, from archives to the use of online media. You'll also have the chance to do your own oral history interviews. In 2014, second-year students talked to survivors of the 1943 Bethnal Green Tube disaster. At UEL we regularly take our teaching beyond the classroom. Critically engaging with public history while expanding your knowledge, you’ll go on trips to museums, libraries and archives. Every year first-year students take guided walks and visit London museums, second-year students are given tours of local archives, and the third year of study includes a visit to the British Museum's Enlightenment gallery. Working closely with local heritage organisations, work experience placements are embedded into our programme. In recent years students have completed short placements with organisations including the Jewish Museum, the London Transport Museum, Tower Hamlets Archives and our own UEL Archives. Public history is an important topic in our degree, and students wishing to pursue a career in Heritage are encouraged to take option modules in heritage and tourism in their final year. If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a BA, you can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year course. You'll begin with a foundation year which prepares you for a successful transition to the BA degree.
