The course is very flexible and allows you to study the periods and subjects in history that most interest you. You can also combine this with other subjects from the School of History, Classics and Archaeology eg ancient history or archaeology as well as related topics such as politics, English or a foreign language.
This course is taught and based on the Newcastle University campus.
The course is delivered through a combination of seminars, lectures, individual tutorials and small-group teaching. Module teaching runs Monday to Friday, during the day and term time only. Your tutors and other academic staff are normally available for consultation, and for dissertation supervision, during vacations.
If you plan to take this course part time, you will agree your module selection with the Degree Programme Director.
