Exploring primarily contemporary or 19th and 20th century history, the course focuses on important issues such as war and conflict, immigration, racism, nationalism and empire. As you move through the three years, you will study more specific topics and the subject matter will become increasingly complex. Taught by experts in their own field, you will expand and develop a wide range of skills and learn how to absorb, understand and communicate complex information.
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.
