Overview

Exploring primarily contemporary and 19th and 20th century history, this course will hone your ability to absorb, understand and communicate complex information. 

As you progress through the course, we’ll challenge you with more in-depth explorations, and the subject matter will become increasingly complex.

The History (Hons) course De Montfort University is diverse, international in focus and innovative. We cover British, South Asian, European and American history and, more unusually for a degree course in the UK, also include photographic history, the history of sport and leisure, science, migration, ethnicity and racism, and employability.

Graduate careers

The History in the Workplace module prepares you to think more widely about employability, and to recognise – and articulate to employers – the rich skills you bring to any workplace.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in a variety of areas, such as working as an archivist in the National Archives, a reporter for the Daily Express, a university lecturer and a teacher for Her Majesty’s Prison Service. Graduates also have the opportunity to undertake further studies such as the History MA or the Sports History and Culture MA at DMU.
