Course Description

This history degree is shaped by our research passions and expertise. You'll explore a diverse range of topics, including gender, violence, migration, national identities and the environment, across the 17th to the 20th centuries. The historic site of our Greenwich Campus provides easy access to important archives and museums in central London.

You can also undertake a placement in the creative, cultural, education or heritage sectors, and explore other subjects such as politics, English, or a foreign language. Our history graduates emerge with valuable communication, digital and project management skills for a wide range of careers, including teaching, journalism, publishing and heritage management.

  •  The course explores the origins of globalisation where east and west meet. It follows the women and men - sailors, slaves, merchants, criminals - who passed through Greenwich en route to making the modern world.
  •  It introduces you to a range of historical methods and historiography, and aims to help you develop as a critical, analytical thinker and communicator.
  •  You will work with creative and inspiring teachers and researchers whose work shapes the modules you'll follow.
  •  The course traces over 500 years of British and global history through the buildings, museums and outdoor spaces of Greenwich and London.
  •  Our 'History in practice' and work placement modules provide an opportunity to apply your historical knowledge and skills to a range of organisations and employers.
