Choosing a degree

If your primary interest is History, we suggest you apply for the single honours BA History programme. If you are keen to learn about the theory and conventions of two disciplines you should choose a joint degree; this can be demanding but also very rewarding. For joint degrees, you will be expected to demonstrate some knowledge or experience of the other subject discipline.

Study abroad

The Department of History offers an Erasmus scheme which enables you to live in a European city for part of your degree.
