Committed to high quality teaching and student choice

One of the best History departments in the UK specialising in the political, social and cultural history of Britain and Europe from the Middle Ages to the present day.

The School of History at UEA ranks in the top 10 departments in the UK, according to the 2014 Guardian University Guide. We offer our students a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, taught by one of the largest groups of historians in the country. 90 per cent of our research has been classified as being of international importance or better (RAE 2008).

The diverse ranges of modules available allow our students to direct their own learning, from the medieval to the contemporary period. The 2014 Guardian University Guide revealed 97 per cent student satisfaction with our teaching.

Our graduates are highly employable having mastered skills such as the ability to communicate with precision and also the ability to research, analyse and present data on complex subjects.

We also provide our students with the opportunity to secure valuable and relevant experience with a variety of employers through our internship programme.
