University of Bristol
The History stream will give you a taste of two different university degree courses with a historical dimension: History and History of Art. The Department of History is recognised for its innovative work in areas such as medieval Europe, modern China, the histories of colonialism and empire, the Holocaust and environmental history. The Department of History of Art has interests ranging from medieval and Renaissance art to modernism, covering topics from Giotto to Picasso, from the visual culture of sport to the relationships between art, music and text. The sessions will introduce you to the ways in which History and History of Art are studied at university by focusing on some detailed ideas and concepts in each area. They will provide an opportunity for you to encounter different ways of studying historical events, and of exploring art and literature produced in the recent and more distant past. This stream will suit you if you have an interest in the past and want to find out more about taking these subjects at degree level. You do not need to have studied any of these areas already, but the sessions are also designed to give you a fresh insight into your A-level studies.
