This degree combines the study of modern British, Irish and world history, focusing on Europe, America, Asia and Africa. You’ll approach history from many different directions, and a rich range of themes are present in our teaching: cultural history, economic and social history, gender history, public history, and political history. You’ll experience a community history project, field trips and work placement modules in the second and third years. Given the range of opportunities, it’s no wonder this course has continuous high levels of student satisfaction. That’s why we ranked 18th in the UK and 2nd in the North West for overall student satisfaction in the 2015 Guardian League Table, outperforming Oxford University, Cambridge University, Lancaster University, Liverpool University and Manchester University in this category. Our history graduates have gone on to very successful careers in teaching, museum, library and archive work.
