Course Introduction

You'll have the opportunity to gain precious industry'standard experience and apply your academic skills within the workplace through our History at Work placement scheme. We offer something different and exciting ' we use innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to history and anthropology, and will encourage you to explore issues, controversies and themes rather than chronological periods. You'll work with staff who are enthusiastic researchers as well as being excellent teachers, many being recognised as international leaders in their field. The departments are large enough to provide a wide range of modules, but small enough to let you get to know other students and staff. The degree will give you access to a wide range of careers by developing your critical, analytical and communication skills; we help you think beyond the traditional boundaries of subjects in ways which employers really value. Through your degree, you'll learn to solve complex problems, think critically and creatively, and communicate with clarity. Our graduates have gone on to work for the UN, World Bank, NGOs, law companies and CSR consultancies.
