All our undergraduate programmes are carefully crafted to offer a wide range of modules and the flexibility to tailor your degree programme to the areas that you are most interested in. There are very few core modules, to ensure that you get as much choice as possible. You learn within a challenging academic environment and are encouraged to
study widely and formulate your own opinions while being guided and taught by
our world-class academics.
We invite you to regular talks
from visiting speakers, and the student-led History Society organises lectures,
social events and European trips each year. You have opportunities for work experience, and to study abroad.
Access to primary sources
To develop your skills as a historian, it is vital to have access to a wide range of historical evidence and opinion. In addition to the University's own extensive library collection, our students have privileged access to the Canterbury Cathedral Library and Archives. Here, you have the opportunity to work with unique primary sources including medieval and early modern manuscripts and books. The University is also home to the British Cartoon Archive and holds a rare and complete set of British official histories of the two world wars.
