Durham University

Department of History


Durham’s History Department is an inclusive and welcoming community with a strong commitment to equality and diversity, outreach and public engagement.

Located within the magnificent setting of Durham’s World Heritage Site and the broader regional context of North-East England, we offer modules that range from the local to the global. We teach everything from the history of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria through to the making of modern Africa.

A significant amount of the teaching in the Department takes place in intimate, small-scale settings, and there is a strong emphasis on research-led teaching, so that students are encouraged to be active researchers throughout their academic careers with us.
