Manchester Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
From ancient civilisations and great empires, to terrible battles and the roots of our modern society, history is a vast landscape to explore and understand.
The past is part of our every day lives, shaping our world profoundly. Study history and you won’t just learn about what happened in the past. You’ll develop a better understanding of the how and why of the events that make us who we are. In other words – you won’t just discover the story, you’ll investigate and interpret its sources, impacts and meanings.
This degree programme offers a roadmap for exploring the social and political landscape of human history. You’ll look at a huge variety of times and places – immersing yourself in wars and famine and poverty, charting technological leaps and social progress, and unearthing conspiracies, catastrophes and revolutions. And that’s just in your first year.
Staff researchers constantly work to search for new discoveries, fresh perspectives and unknown aspects of our history, bringing this history alive in the classroom. With this degree we give you the skills to understand the world and how this effects societal developments.
This course has a Foundation Year available.
