Bachelors Humanities and Social Sciences. The European History programme is virtually identical in structure, content and flexibility to our History BA programme, with the notable exception of a year abroad in a European partner institution. As a four-year programme, students will spend their first and second year in Canterbury and their third year with one of our partner instutitions in France or Germany, before returning to Canterbury for their final year. As teaching in the year abroad will be in the native language, it is a requirement that students applying to this course have a strong grounding in a relevant, modern European language. All of our modules are rooted in the research interests of our academics, so are equally wide ranging. More than 70 undergraduate history modules invite you to study subjects as diverse as the crusades to the Cold War; from the impact of science on 19th century culture to the totalitarian regimes of Stalin's Russia and Hitler's Third Reich; from Anglo-Saxon England to the French revolution. Our programmes are carefully crafted to allow undergraduates to tailor their degree to their own interests. As such, we only have one first-year core module: Making History, which aims to ease the progression from further education by providing an essential grounding in the disciplines and skills required for historical study. The first year also provides an ideal opportunity for students to experiment with different areas of academic study. Students are encouraged to investigate areas of history they have not studied before, in order to enable them to make informed decisions regarding second and third-year study options, leading in to their dissertation. Entry Requirements - A levels - ABB at A-Level - and a minimum of a B in A level History, if taken. - A minimum language qualification of GCSE French or German grade B.
