Our new Centre for Modern History is a dynamic hub for innovative historical research that brings together historians, scholars of politics, and experts from across the university and the public sphere.
It is a vibrant research environment in which to gain an in-depth understanding of topics such as history of political activism, nationalism and empire, transformations of the international order, Soviet history, and digital history.
Our undergraduate degrees in History will help you develop a strong understanding of major political, cultural, social, and economic forces that have shaped the world.
History graduates work in nearly every field – not only as historians or researchers, but as teachers, lawyers, consultants, creative and business executives, journalists, writers, and public servants.
In addition to the fundamental understanding of world events, you will learn a range of transferable skills valued by employers, such as research, critical analysis, public speaking, teamwork, problem solving, and community engagement.
