Understanding the making of the modern world has never been more important. Whether it is war and conflict in eastern Europe, political turmoil, social change at home and abroad, the changing role of race, class and gender in modern society, or clashes over monuments and heritage, interpretations of the past influence the present day.
Our History BA (Hons) course scored 94% for teaching and 97% for academic support in the National Student Survey 2023.
With a focus on Early Modern, British, European, American and Russian history, our course explores the fundamental issues, events, and ideas that have shaped the last 600 years.
The foundation of the course is our small class teaching involving interactive discussions, debates, and hands-on workshops that allow you to make the most of class time, while developing key critical skills and confidence.
You will also gain transferrable skills for a number of possible careers by ‘doing‘ history. You will have the opportunity to conduct original research, manage projects and present your work in public facing exhibitions, as well as do work placements and internships.
