We cover past societies, from the late Roman through to the modern period, addressing political, social and cultural themes in history. You'll learn to exercise independent judgement, to be critical of accepted opinion and to present your arguments effectively. Choice and flexibility are at the heart of our teaching, so you can pursue and develop your own interests. At every level, there is a wide variety of modules to choose from, taught by our world-leading experts. Our coherent programme is designed to equip you with the analytical and practical skills and methods needed for historical research and a successful future. We keep our seminar groups small, to ensure everyone can get involved. Research is central to the student experience here in Sheffield. All our teaching is informed by the latest findings, and all our history students have the chance to carry out their own research project as part of their degree. We help all our students to excel. Everyone is assigned a personal tutor for guidance and support.
