We will train you to become a historian yourself, discovering and analysing evidence and generating your own arguments and interpretations. You will also acquire historical knowledge and understanding of different periods of history in different parts of the world. Some modules of large scope cover the broad sweep of history, while other provide highly focused studies based on cutting-edge research by members of staff. We also offer modules that provide valuable insights into various history and heritage careers.
The History (Hons) programme at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is great for enhancing your employment skills. In the second year, you can take the Community History Project, which allows you to work to a project brief devised by a ‘real’ client, to undertake relevant research, and to convey your findings through a display, exhibition, teaching pack, archive guide or town trail. These are often displayed in public museums, including the Harris Museum or the Museum of Lancashire in Preston.
We are highly attuned to the needs of the graduate jobs market. With this in mind, our community history project and work placement modules combine direct workplace experience and project management with the wider qualities and transferable skills that the study of history necessarily entails - including the capacity for rigorous research, critical judgement, and intellectual independence.
