This degree is perfect if you have aspirations to teach history at secondary school level or beyond. The Education aspect of the course allows you to develop an understanding of educational theories, policies and practice, and apply these to past and present educational issues, whilst the History modules cover different periods, topics, places and approaches, from early modern times to contemporary history; different areas including North America, Europe, Asia and Africa; and additional insights into museums and heritage. This means you will be well equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to teach with a high level of subject expertise, and you will also have broader skills as a team-worker and communicator which will be huge assets in any graduate workplace.

UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.

Within the History modules you will cover a wide range of material, which will provide you with useful historical topics that are part of the school curriculum at both GCSE and A Level. In addition, you may also wish to undertake modules with a more practical focus such as the Community History Project. The course has strong elements of local, national and international history.
In the second year students can take the Community History Project, which involves them working to a project brief devised by a real client, undertaking relevant research and feeding back their findings through a display, exhibition, teaching pack, archive guide or town trail.
All third year students will undertake a dissertation in either Education or History.
