Medieval and Early Modern History
The course gives you the opportunity to study the pre-modern period (before 1750) in Europe, Britain and Wales in detail. This is a period that sees the fall of Rome but the continuation of its legacy, particularly in the form of the Church; invasions by Arabs, Magyars, Vikings, and Ottomans; the Crusades; the birth of the universities; the Renaissance; the Reformation; and the development of modern nation states and forms of government.
Of course, although you will specialize in the medieval and early-modern periods, you will still enjoy all the interest, stimulation and experience of a History degree. History remains one of the most popular degree subjects in the UK. It has an established range of concerns, but it is always expanding and changing as it responds to new themes or ideas raised by other disciplines. It is also a very practical subject, and during your degree you will develop various transferable skills that employers value highly. Surveys consistently indicate that History graduates obtain employment more rapidly than graduates in many apparently more 'vocational' subjects.
When making your decision about what you might want to study at Bangor, you should bear in mind that you could choose to read for a degree not only in History but also in Welsh History; History with Archaeology; Heritage, Archaeology and History; History with Journalism; History with Film Studies; and joint degrees including History such as History and English.
Some modules are available in Welsh. You may write essays and examinations in Welsh if you wish.
