Our History department has an International reputation for the quality of its research. Undergraduates are taught by leading researchers who bring their evidence and investigations into the classroom. And the programme also allows for a wide choice of modules focusing on political, social and cultural history between 1500 and 2000. Learning a foreign language at any level can really open up your career opportunities, and it’s not just specialist occupations like translation, interpreting and teaching which you can go into. Practically any job can involve languages, whether it’s based in the UK or overseas. You could work in law, banking or insurance; the media, creative industries or PR; marketing, the civil service or manufacturing.
