Our Medieval and Early Modern History (Hons) programme from Manchester Metropolitan University is flexible and allows you to develop your own specialisms as a historian. You will have the chance to choose units covering a variety of different periods, spanning the ancient to the modern world, and a wide geographical range, including Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.


If your interests develop strongly in one area, you may choose to graduate with a degree title that reflects this: Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern, or American. 

BA (Hons) History: For students whose intellectual curiosity spans centuries and continents, our BA History programme offers an exciting range of options, encompassing over five millennia of human experience. 

BA (Hons) History (Ancient): Our ancient historians offer expertise in ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian history.

BA (Hons) History (Medieval and Early Modern):  Dynamic change marked these fascinating eras; we offer units that challenge conventional wisdom and offer fresh approaches to these seminal centuries.

BA (Hons) History (American): The twentieth century was ‘the American century’, but what fate does this century hold for the United States? Understanding the challenges, foreign and domestic, that face Americans today requires that we understand America’s turbulent past.


Our Medieval and Early Modern History (Hons) programme from Manchester Metropolitan University graduates go into a variety of careers and sectors.
