Studying history at Hull spans 3,000 years, touches five continents, and engages with the vast maritime spaces in between.
You are at the heart of our degree programme and will have the opportunity to forge your own study journey. We use the social, political and environmental challenges of the contemporary world as our starting point for exploring history. This creates a fascinating way of navigating the past from classical civilisations to modern communities.
Our assessments aim to reflect the real world, so you won’t have exams but may have some time-limited tasks. You’ll be encouraged to express your ideas in a variety of ways, to criticise sources of historical information from newspapers to computer games, and develop your own ideas through channels such as podcasts or online exhibitions.
Throughout your studies with us, you’ll develop key techniques for historians, gaining transferable skills of digital literacy, and teamwork and communication. This will equip you for the workplace and enable you to create a brighter future for yourself and the world we live in, fuelled by your passion for history.
