This is a 30 CATS first-year core module for all single-honours history students and an optional module for joint-honours students, but is not available to students from outside of the History Department or to visiting exchange students. The module explores the practice of history through the research process, from primary sources to the presentation, dissemination, manipulation and consumption of historical interpretation. It encourages students to think critically about materials, scholarship and their own approach to academic work in different media.

This module includes input from and interaction with the University Library (Academic Services Team), the Modern Records Centre, the Academic Technology Team and Student Careers and Skills.
