    I don't do history but my friend does, and I think she has had/will have about 3 over the course of the winter term. Apparently they're not too tricky, though.

    Yes, you do at least one per course. It's easy and if you're really interested in studying history you should be fine.

    Which areas would you be interested in studying? Africa or Far/South/Middle/Near East Asia?

    Yeh at least one that is graded for each history module, and you'll probably do a "mock" one in each too. Lots of essays throughout the year for each too. Around three for each. Too be honest the workload is really light for History compared to say a language degree. Bar essays and presentations, all you really have to do is the reading for each week.

    For the first year, you do one presentation, in front of your (relatively small) tutorial group in each history module. I took Arabic and one unit of History, so I only have to do one history presentation for the whole year. I have three essays for that history module throughout the year, which I suppose is good...but Arabic cancels out any kind of light work load there...
