Course summary

Studying history enables us to put ourselves and our societies into perspective, establishing connections between the events, ideas and people that built past and present worlds. Here at Huddersfield you’ll be able to engage with a different approaches to history, and work with primary source materials in dynamic and innovative ways. * History has a 95% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2019). * Our History modules cover a range of eras from medieval to modern times, and are geographically diverse allowing you to investigate the periods that inspire you most. * You’ll gain valuable real world experience. The 5-week work experience placement in Year 2 and the optional year-long placement after the second year could help open up your graduate employment prospects. * You can get creative with opportunities to design a marketing pitch for a historical film, or an interactive soundwalk. * Opportunities to explore our innovative award-winning archive at Heritage Quay and the newly opened Holocaust Learning and Exhibition Centre. * You could also join the student History Society, and organise trips, debates and social events. Our course also gives you a range of skills that you can take out into the world of work - good communication and analytical skills, independent and team working, and problem solving. The History curriculum at Huddersfield contains some of the most cutting-edge and innovative modules, learning strategies and assessments I have seen in institutions I have worked with across the sector. All option modules are research-led, and the commitment to encouraging students to produce public facing outputs, and to see their work as something that engages with and is of use to a wider community, is very impressive. ~ Professor Charlotte Alston, External Examiner (History). Additional Costs: Placements The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
