Program Overview

Study the history of Britain, Europe, America, Asia and Africa and develop valuable skills and a sense of enquiry that you can apply to both the past and the present

Why UWE Bristol?

  • BA(Hons) History shows you how to interrogate the past and expand your knowledge through challenging academic study.
  • Our staff are passionate about teaching and research. They'll help you deepen your historical knowledge and develop your critical thinking. Besides traditional forms of assessment such as essays, you'll have the opportunity to build practical skills, using software and editing tools, to make your own films, documentaries and websites.
  • Nurture your imagination and creativity, and build on your fascination with the social, economic and political forces that have shaped history across centuries and continents.
  • Using primary sources from the start, explore events in their historical contexts and gain a unique insight into the important global issues of today.
  • Study a broad spectrum of history, working on individual and group research projects. Gain skills and experience that will help you succeed in your studies and in your chosen career.
  • Take a look at the UWE History Community blog, a fantastic forum for student talent and creativity.
  • There are many opportunities to engage with Bristol's culture and fascinating history. We have strong links with Bristol's museums, galleries and archives, including M Shed, Watershed, the Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust and the National Trust.
  • In your third year, you could negotiate a work placement with a local cultural provider, spending six months gaining real-world skills, experience and contacts. There are shorter placement opportunities too, and projects with heritage organisations.
  • Focusing on the avenues that most interest you, through your modules and assessments, you'll graduate well equipped to pursue diverse careers.

Why study history?

  • History isn't just about facts. It's about the human experience in all its diversity. It's also about acquiring a sense of enquiry, which will sustain you during and after your studies.
  • History is a long-established discipline, much respected by employers because of the critical skills it gives you.
  • Understanding the past equips us to engage more intelligently with the present and to play a more valuable and informed part in society, whatever career path you decide to follow.

What can I do with a history degree?

  • The heritage sector, in particular, continues to grow dynamically and to attract history graduates.
  • However, graduates also enter into and succeed in a wide range of other sectors, including publishing, education, advertising and marketing, communications, IT, law, broadcasting, tourism and more. Many go on to further study.
