History at Winchester concentrates on different geographical scales of history, including local and global perspectives. It gives you the opportunity to engage with a range of approaches to the study of history, examining a range of historical subjects from ancient history to the present.
Start the course by exploring historical methods and research skills, followed by in-depth topic-based modules and the opportunity to devise and develop a specialist dissertation. The Approaches to the Past module, in the first semester, provides guidance on the different approaches to the study of history, including geographical scales of study and disciplinary approaches.
There are four core modules: Approaches to the Past, Research Methods and Skills, an Independent Study Presentation, and a dissertation. You also choose three special study modules from a varied list of options. Examples include The Fall of the Ancient City; Sport and Leisure in Victorian Britain; Medieval Queenship-Gender and Power in the Global Middle Ages; The ‘fifteen-year war’ and public memory in postwar Japan; Documenting the Local Past; The Organisation and Representation of Colonial Violence; and Church, Society, and Conflict in the Medieval West, c. 1000 - c. 1150. Please note that not all the Special Study options will run every year
