Course description

History is a subject for anyone with a sense of curiosity and a desire for a deeper understanding of the world around them.

  • Prepare for success on a course which consistently achieves great results in the National Student Survey: in 2020, 90% of students were satisfied with their course
  • Explore the broad sweep of British, European and global history from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century
  • Undertake fieldwork at historical locations ranging from country houses to industrial cities
  • Share your passion for the past by organising and marketing a high-profile public conference where you present your research
  • Benefit from the support of a dedicated and enthusiastic teaching team who are published experts in their field
  • Develop an impressive set of critical, theoretical and transferable skills which will give you a real advantage in securing a graduate career.

You will use your research and creative skills to interpret the past for the benefit of the wider community. We provide exciting opportunities for projects involving international arts and heritage organisations. Among recent initiatives, our students have worked with Derbyshire County Record Office to encourage young people to take a greater interest in archives and with Derby Theatre, National Brewery Centre and Derby Museum.

You will also inspire others by organising and marketing a public conference and presenting your research to a wider audience. Topics explored at this conference have included the experience of British prisoners-of-war during the First World War, the fight against the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and the pleasure gardens of eighteenth-century London.
