The Department of History & Welsh History also arranges talks from alumni and other speakers in the private and public sectors on careers ranging from telecommunications to museum management.

Study Abroad opportunities:

All Aber History students have the opportunity to spend one or two semesters in their second year studying at a partner university in Europe (the Erasmus exchange) or further abroad (international exchange). This will allow you to study new historical subjects or gain more expertise in the subjects that interest you most. You will also develop and demonstrate transferable employability skills such as self-reliance, cultural awareness, independence and initiative.

A recent Erasmus Impact survey showed that 64% of employers considered international experience important for recruitment and that studying or working abroad will increase your chances of finding employment by up to 41% compared to students who do not study or work abroad.

Heritage sector student placements

Our department has strong links with the heritage sector, and an established portfolio of student placements. In the past, students have spent up to three weeks at the National Library of Wales (including Welsh-medium opportunities), the Royal Commission on the Ancient & Historic Monuments of Wales, and the Society of Antiquaries of London. These placements provide the opportunity for ‘hands-on’ experience and insights into the heritage sector, and are available to students on all of our History degrees.

The Gregynog Undergraduate History Conferences:

As part of your History studies at Aber you will also be invited to participate in our highly-popular Gregynog Medieval, Early Modern and Modern History Conferences. These are two-day mini-conferences held in the beautiful setting of historic Gregynog Hall, deep in the mid-Wales countryside, and designed to introduce undergraduate students to new research from current staff, postgraduates and visiting guest speakers in a friendly and informal environment.

Addysg a Dysgu

What will I learn?

The breakdown below will provide you with an illustration of what you may study during the three year degree scheme.

During your three years of study you will develop your historical interests by choosing option modules from the full range of subject areas taught by our department and your overseas host institution.  You will also be learning and applying research approaches and methods that will ready you for your final year dissertation.

In your first year you will be introduced to: 

  • new historical skills and concepts, and a comprehensive introduction to university-level study skills, through our Year 1 core module Introduction to History;
  • new historical themes and subject areas from across the Medieval and Early Modern world, through our wide choice of Year 1 option modules.

In your second year you will explore:

  • the ways in which the meaning, methods and writing of history have changed over time, through our Year 2 core module Making History;
  • insights into the historian’s craft, through practice-based seminar classes;
  • different topics and periods from our extensive list of Year 2 option modules;
  • You may also spend one or two semesters studying abroad at a partner university of your choice.

In your final year back in Aber you will study:

  • two option modules of your choice;
  • a Special Subject, in which you undertake in-depth research, using original sources and engaging with cutting edge scholarship;
  • your History Dissertation, independently researched by you on a subject of your choice, supervised by an expert historian in the department.

How will I be taught and assessed?

Our wide variety of different learning, teaching and assessment modes will enable you to develop skills in formal writing, small group presentation, constructing informed arguments under time pressure, independent research, and working as part of a team, using the most up-to-date resources and digital platforms.  The Department of History & Welsh History also maintains individual essay tutorials for all students - rare outside Oxbridge - and has a supportive system of personal tutors, providing unrivalled one-to-one contact throughout your degree.

Barn ein Myfyrwyr

Studying History at Aberystwyth has been brilliant. The ability to pick modules and cater to your tastes has allowed me to pursue exactly what I want. If I want to study Russia I can. Alongside this the great teaching staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge and provide excellent teaching. I can approach them very easily and they are willing to give me the time and support I need. I can ask for help with essays and advice on what to read and research. Reading is key as a historian and the Library is a great resource for getting books. It has nearly all the books you need and should the book be out you can go to the National Library of Wales. In my 2 years of studying history I have not regretted my choice once, and going into my third year I simply cannot wait! Connor Lambert

What I love about studying History at Aberystwyth is everything! It is such a great degree scheme, with a wide range of modules to choose from in each year of study. The tutors are fantastic and always helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone within the department is friendly - staff and students alike - which creates a lovely working atmosphere. We have a fantastic resource just down the road, the National Library of Wales, which not only contains every book published in the UK after 1911, but is also a beautiful building to study in and commands the best view over the whole of Aberystwyth town. Studying History at Aberystwyth is the best decision I have ever made! Rachel Twomey
