Course summary

The curriculum for History at DMU is diverse, international in focus and innovative. We use a mixture of year-long and half-year modules to allow students to broaden out their studies and to experience a variety of different teaching methods, module structures and assessment patterns. If you are interested in learning about British, South Asian, European and American History you will be well catered for. We are also proud to offer the opportunity to specialise in areas that are either unique or extremely uncommon in History degrees delivered in the UK. For example, our modules include photographic history, the history of sport and leisure, history of science, history of migration, history of ethnicity and racism, and history and employability. In addition, our lecturers’ geographical specialisations include the history of South Asia, Southeastern Europe, Central America, and Southeast Asia.
