This course is great preparation for careers in archaeology (excavation, surveying, HER management), heritage (visitor services, collection management, education) and history teaching.

We work with a number of regional organisations, including Sedgeford History, The Archaeological Project and Vivacity, and have access to a number of valuable sites in the Peterborough area.

You’ll be able to gain valuable experience of excavations and general heritage work, on placement and throughout your course.

Modules & assessment

Year one, core modules

Year two, core modules

  • History Today: Methods and Approaches
    On this module you'll reflect on the methods of the discipline of History and, in the Personal Development Plan element, on your own progress as a student. You'll also be instructed in Research Methods, in preparation for writing your dissertation in the final year. You'll discuss how to analyse historical sources and consider the merits of varied historical traditions, as well as reflecting on the nature and problems inherent in the process of constructing history. Your assessment will take the form of a set of exercises in which you will reflect on the nature of the discipline of History, show competence in the research skills taught on the module, and reflect on your progress as a student.

Year three, core modules

  • Major Project
    The individual Major Project will allow you to undertake a substantial piece of individual research, focused on a topic relevant to your specific course. Your topic will be assessed for suitability to ensure sufficient academic challenge and satisfactory supervision by an academic member of staff. The project will require you to identify/formulate problems and issues, conduct research, evaluate information, process data, and critically appraise and present your findings/creative work. You should arrange and attend regular meetings with your project supervisor, to ensure that your project is closely monitored and steered in the right direction.

Assessment

We’ll assess your progress using a mixture of exams, assignments, reflective log books, essays and practical placements.
