History University of Huddersfield


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. But make no mistake about it, our courses also give you a range of skills that you can take out into the world of work.

On this course we'll give you the chance to shape your studies to your interests. Perhaps you want to study the history of a particular nation, or take an international view to see patterns and connections between nations' stories. During your studies you’ll be able to engage with a range of approaches to history, and investigate the periods that fascinate and inspire you.

We have a friendly, hands-on approach to delivering our courses. All of our modules aim to equip you with the skills that employers are looking for; good communication and analytical skills, independent and team working, and problem solving.

We never forget that your studies should lead on to a rewarding career, so we make sure you get a hands-on experience. The 5-week work related project in Year 2 and the year-long optional placement after the second year, both provide the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience, insight into your chosen career and open up your graduate employment prospects.

You might be surprised by just how creative you can be on our History course too, with opportunities to create exhibitions or podcasts on your subject. You’ll also have the chance to take part in the ERASMUS+ exchange scheme and dive into our innovative award-winning archive at Heritage Quay.
