History at Ulster gives you the freedom to choose the topics that interest you most. We teach early modern, modern and contemporary histories and provide a broad range of optional modules. You can study the history of Britain and Ireland, the United States, Russia and the Soviet Union, the Middle East, and many more. In your final year, you can design your own research project. We have expertise in medical history, gender history and social and political history. Built around a core of significant authors writing in English from Elizabethan times to the end of the Twentieth Century, from Shakespeare to Seamus Heaney, this programme also provides the opportunity for you to follow your own interests through a wide range of optional modules. You can, for example, follow strands on creative and professional writing, women’s writing and gender studies, and American literature, or select from modules on historical fiction, contemporary fiction, modern drama, love poetry, the Victorian novel, or Beat culture, to name just a few. In your final year, you will – guided by a member of the teaching team – write a dissertation on a topic of your own choice. This combination of one-third compulsory historical core and two-thirds specialist optional modules will allow you to develop your own areas of expertise whilst still attaining a solid grounding in the history of English literature.
