In surveys of British universities, we are consistently ranked among the top history departments for teaching provision and student satisfaction.
We offer a single honours degree in History and joint honours degrees with English, Classics (ancient, medieval and modern history), and Modern European Languages (with a year studying abroad), and we contribute to combined honours and education studies degrees. The curriculum is research-led, and emphasises breadth and choice, covering multiple types, periods and geographical areas.
Our students are high-achievers: over 90% of our students obtain first- or second-class degrees. Our graduates enter a variety of exciting careers, including journalism, law, banking, consultancy, the civil service and other public administration, and teaching. Almost a third of our graduates engage in further study, pursuing postgraduate programmes in History or related disciplines or undertaking a career-based vocational course.
