2. Description of the Programme

The History and Archaeology programme builds on a broad foundation in the first year, to highly specialised work in the final year, including the study of a particular subject in depth.

History at the University of Exeter gives you the tools you need to study the history that interests you.  It develops a broad foundation of skills and knowledge in the first year, builds on this in the second year as you begin to become an independent researcher, and culminates in the opportunity to produce highly specialised work in the final year, including the study of a particular subject in depth. There is a huge amount of module choice available to you, covering time periods from the Roman Empire to the early twenty-first century, and topics as diverse as migration and mobility, indigenous peoples in Latin America, the history of health and its politics, women in society, the Vikings, magic and witchcraft in early modern Europe, and histories of material things.

Archaeology will enable you to explore both the academic and practical dimensions of a uniquely fascinating discipline. Building on a firm foundation of the subject provided in the first year, the degree will give you a wide variety of choice to follow your particular interests. These can cover the microscopic analysis of ancient artefacts to the exploration of entire fossilised landscapes, from understanding prehistoric villages to recording historic buildings; the subject is broad, multi-disciplinary and dynamic.

As you work through your degree, you can develop your own specialisation, culminating in a dissertation supported by one-to-one tuition.

3. Educational Aims of the Programme

This programme aims to develop your competence in the subject-specific and research skills required in History and Archaeology, through extended engagement with primary sources and methodologies, relevant critical material, theoretical contexts, and through a combination of both broad and detailed focuses on particular aspects of the past, study of a range of time periods, and study of different geographical areas.

You will acquire advanced competence in core academic, personal and key skills, providing a basis for career progression in the academic and professional worlds. You will be exposed to a variety of teaching and assessment methods within appropriate learning environments, supported by feedback and monitoring. You will also be given an opportunity to develop your independent study skills through a piece of individual research. 

The programme provides an intellectually stimulating, satisfying experience of learning and studying, and forms a sound basis for further study in History, Archaeology or related disciplines. It aims to develop a range of subject-specific, academic and transferable skills, including high order conceptual literacy and communication skills of value in graduate employment. History and Archaeology, like other programmes offered within the Faculty of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, encourages you to become a global citizen, a productive, useful and questioning member of society, and provides thorough training for further study or a specialist career. You may utilise the skills you develop in a range of sectors, including consultancy, market research, the civil service, education, teaching, new media industries, journalism and publishing, research, charities, information science, advertising and public relations.

6. Present work in the format expected of historians, including footnoting and bibliographical references.
7. Show knowledge of how quantitative data can be used in historical research.
8. Archaeology: Understand basic archaeological techniques and appreciate their major advantages and disadvantages.
9. Appreciate the relationship between data collected in the field and its interpretation.
10. Identify the different roles of professional archaeologists.
11. Understand the chronology of archaeological periods and the main themes in archaeology from early prehistory to the end of the Middle Ages.
12. Show familiarity with some key archaeological sites and finds.
13. Show competence in the various techniques of practical Archaeology and an understanding of their problems and possibilities.
14. Use appropriate archaeological terminology.
15. Deploy information from technical projects.
16. Demonstrate understanding (at increasing depth, according to level) of thematic/methodological issues (increasingly complex, according to level).

History

1, 2 and 3 are developed at stage one in all modules, though lectures, seminars, and written work. 1 is further developed especially in the Uses of the Past module at stage two. 2 and 3 form the backbone of all modules taken at all stages, but the level of complexity and nuance develops according to stage. 

Students are encouraged to use stage two Doing History in the Digital Age as a way of addressing 4, and concentrate on doing so in the Dissertation at stage 3. More generally, the assignments that they are given in all modules develops this skill in them from the outset of their programme.

5 is a requirement of all modules, but primary source emphasis develops in complexity as the student progresses through the stages of the programme. 

Students are given clear guidelines about 6 in the Student Handbook, and are instructed in such matters at stage one, and are expected to demonstrate it in all modules.

7 is developed through Sources and Skills and may be developed in other elective modules. Many modules have a requirement of some work with quantitative data.


Archaeology

8-10 are developed initially through first year modules, particularly ARC1020, and then through ARC2003/4, and in increasing sophistication through options during stages 2 and 3.

11 and 12 are introduced through first year modules, particularly ARC1010, and developed through thematic options at stages 2 and 3.

13-15 are introduced in ARC1020 and developed in ARC2003/4, and further enhanced through thematic options at stages 2 and 3.

16 is developed through the optional thematic modules taken across all three stages. The level of competence expected of students intensifies at each stage of the programme. Methodological issues area introduced through ARC1020 and developed through ARC2003/4. The chronological and thematic framework are introduced in ARC1010 and optional modules at stage 1 and developed through options at stages 2 and 3. ARC3000 at stage 3 brings the methodological and thematic elements together in an independent research dissertation.

The assessment of all these skills is through a combination of term-time coursework, oral presentations, blogs, project and dissertation work, and examinations. The criteria of assessment pay full recognition to the importance of the various skills outlined.

Intended Learning Outcomes
B: Academic Discipline Core Skills and Knowledge

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs)

17. Draw thematic comparisons between material from different sources.
18. Show awareness of contrasting approaches to research and judge between competing views.
19. Show a clear understanding of the nature of both qualitative and quantitative evidence. Learning Teaching/ strategies (in/out of class). These skills are all developed throughout the degree programme, but the emphasis becomes more complex as students move from stage to stage. They are developed through lectures and seminars, written work, and oral work (both presentation and class discussion).

These skills are all developed throughout the degree programme, but the emphasis becomes more complex as students move from stage to stage. They are developed through lectures and seminars, written work, and oral work (both presentation and class discussion).
