About History at Bournemouth University

From the polite conversation of the eighteenth century coffeehouse to the agitation of twentieth century acid-house, this course gives you the opportunity to explore modern British history, with a media twist. Rooted in social, cultural and political history, there is also a strong focus on Europe as well as wider global contexts.

You will be joining an active history community that combines both the social and the scholarly, with a lively History Society and membership of our internationally renowned Centre for Media History.

  • Throughout your degree, you'll have the opportunity to engage with public history by working with a range of outside agencies including museums, archives and heritage organisations
  • For your final year project, you'll work in small teams on a proposal for a public history event, including working with organisations such as Wimborne Minster, Dorset History Centre, Christchurch Cathedral and Bournemouth Civic Society
  • In addition to traditional essays and exams, you'll be assessed through exhibitions, posters, websites, podcasts, blogs and even a mock peace conference
  • 96% of final year students said they received sufficient advice and guidance in relation to the course
  • Make invaluable employment connections and add valuable experience to your CV in either a four week or 30-week placement. Work with organisations such as Dorset History Centre, Huntley Film Archives and ABA Antiques.
