Kent’s BA (Hons) in Ancient, Medieval and Modern History is a new programme combining modules from the Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies with those offered by the School of History to give you an insight into all periods of the world’s history.

Any study of history engages a natural human curiosity about the past. On this programme, you go right back into the past to include the study of the Ancient world alongside the Medieval and Modern Worlds to explore the interaction between these societies through a focus on historical investigation across a wider time span.

The great strength of studying Ancient History, is the hugely interesting and varied range of subjects it includes – the study of Egypt, Greece, Rome and their neighbours through the study of a wide range of historical sources and engagement with archaeology, art and architecture, with the possibility of also studying ancient languages, literature and mythology, as well as drama and philosophy. It prides itself on its high levels of student satisfaction and broad choice of approaches to the Ancient World.

The School of History has a long established flexible BA programme in History with strengths in all time periods from the Medieval to the end of the twentieth century. The school is recognised for its research excellence, flexible programmes and quality of its teaching. You will be taught by passionate academics, active researchers and recognised experts.

Studying Ancient, Medieval and Modern History, you learn how to approach and critically analyse many types of sources within their proper contexts, and gain an understanding of exactly how they have impacted upon different individuals, groups and events – both in the past and in the present day.

This programme is an ideal choice for those interested in world history and who wish to gain practical skills to engage with an understanding of how the past shapes the present.
