History

Overview

History

Focusing on modern history across the globe, our History degrees place contemporary society into perspective by highlighting a period of discovery, change and conflict that continues to shape and inform the present day.

Principally exploring the history of Britain, Europe, the USA and Asia, you will examine a range of political systems, cultures and geographical locations from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first centuries, with opportunities to specialise in topics from European migration to US foreign policy.

A student-centred culture and world-leading research (REF 2014) underpin the learning experience, with the option to study History as a Single Honours degree or in combination with Education, English Literature or Politics.

Facilities

History FacilitiesThe Department of English, History and Creative Writing is based in the Main Building at the centre of the campus, near the £26m Catalyst building which includes the University library.

A prime example of 1930s architecture, the Main Building has undergone extensive refurbishment to combine a traditional setting with modern facilities, including the £15m Student Hub.

The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.
