About BA History and Italian

This joint honours degree allows you to study two complementary disciplines, both of which ask you to think carefully about texts in their broader cultural and historical contexts. This course combines the broad historical knowledge and well-developed research skills gained in a history degree with the in-depth cultural awareness and advanced linguistic skills that come from studying modern languages.

You will join two large departments with top researchers in a great diversity of fields and will be encouraged to develop expertise and research skills relevant to both disciplines while also considering the relationships between them.

Your third year will be spent abroad, where you will have the opportunity to explore these intersections in the distinct cultural and social context of Italy while studying or working. Those who choose to study at a university will be urged to select history-based options while those who opt for work placements will be encouraged to seek placements in the heritage sector.

Finally, you will get the chance to explore these intersections independently in a dissertation in year four. You will be required to write a historically minded dissertation using at least some sources written in Italian.

The combined knowledge of history, language and culture will mean you are uniquely placed to foster and to lead intercultural communication across national boundaries, a skill that is increasingly sought after in a globalised economy.
