After your first year you can choose to focus on a particular period, theme or region or to develop a breadth of chronological and geographical knowledge.
Your module options will include British, European, American, Asian and Middle Eastern history, from the ancient world to the twenty-first century.
These modules emerge from the research expertise of academic staff in the department. You will be taught by leaders in the field of critical historical research.
