Studying history enables us to put ourselves and our society in perspective, understanding the connections and events that have led up to the world we now live in. Here at Huddersfield you’ll be able to engage with a range of approaches to history, and work with primary source materials in interesting and innovative ways.

  • History has a 94% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2018)
  • Our History modules cover a range of eras from medieval to modern times, and are geographically diverse allowing you to investigate the periods that fascinate and inspire you most
  • You’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable real world experience. The 5-week work related project in Year 2 and the year-long optional placement after the second year could help open up your graduate employment prospects
  • Get creative with opportunities to design a marketing pitch for a historical film, or an interactive soundwalk
  • Opportunities to study abroad, explore our innovative award-winning archive at Heritage Quay (http://heritagequay.org/) and the newly opened Holocaust Learning and Exhibition Centre (http://holocaustlearning.org/)
  • You could also join the Student History Society, and organise trips, debates and social events
Our course also gives you a range of skills that you can take out into the world of work - good communication and analytical skills, independent and team working, and problem solving.
