The Single-Honours History degree programme offers a well-structured history degree, built around core modules in each of the three years, while allowing a wide range of options to suit individual interests. Students choose between two broad pathways: Modern History, which includes some early modern history but allows the maximum choice of options, or Renaissance and Modern History which places greater emphasis on the early modern period including one term of the final year spent studying the Italian renaissance in Venice. Applicants do not need to indicate a preference between these pathways upon application, the choice of pathway is made when students are due to arrive at Warwick.
Please note that in their second year, single-honours History students may apply for a Year Abroad (please see https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/history/students/international/yearabroad/) for details. If successful in their application, students convert from the V100 three-year course to the V101 four-year course with the Year Abroad taking place between the second and final years of study at Warwick.
