Ancient and Medieval History (Hons) from University of Birmingham goes back to the roots of modern civilisation in Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and the Middle Ages. One aspect of study is social history: how people in the past lived, worked, traded and enjoyed their leisure.  


The Ancient and Medieval History (Hons) degree offered by University of Birmingham is taught in the School of History and Cultures which means that you can draw on a vast range of expertise in Ancient History and Archaeology, Medieval History, Classics and Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies.

We have a distinctive emphasis on using literature, history and archaeology in the study of the ancient world, and we offer a range of expertise. This ensures a wide choice of times, countries and cultures may be studied.

The first year represents a foundation year in which we instill core skills and knowledge for historical enquiry.  In the second year, the emphasis on small group teaching and independent learning increases and you develop as a historian of the ancient and medieval worlds.  In the final year you study medieval and ancient modules, along with a 12,000 word Dissertation, using primary sources to answer a historical question which you have developed since your second year.
