Course summary

Our History programme is diverse, international in focus and innovative. Exploring primarily modern and contemporary history, this course will teach you the skills for effective research and analysis, helping to hone your ability to absorb, understand and communicate complex information.  We cover British, South Asian, European and African and North and South American history alongside the more niche topics of photographic history, the history of sport and leisure, war and conflict, migration, ethnicity and racism, and employability.  We use a mixture of year-long and half-year modules to allow you to study a wide range of different subject and experience a variety of diverse teaching methods and types of assessment. As you progress through the course, we’ll challenge you with more in-depth explorations, and the subject matter will become increasingly complex.  You’ll be supported by a passionate teaching team who provide an interactive and dynamic learning environment.At DMU, you can study History and Politics or History and International Relations as a joint honours course, broadening your understanding of events that shape our world.
