Reshaping historical knowledge

The history team specialises in bringing to attention previously forgotten or overlooked sites of historical change. This includes working on areas such as:

  • British history, from the Reformation to Brexit
  • European history, from medieval times to the present
  • American history
  • African and African diaspora
  • Political history
  • War and International Relations
  • Social and Cultural history

Students working on the degrees BA (Hons) History, BA (Hons) Modern History, BA (Hons) Medieval and Early Modern History and the MA Cultural History engage directly with the process of writing and rethinking history. Through each level of the degrees they gain transferable skills valued by graduate training schemes. Students develop a passion and enthusiasm for an academic discipline which trains the mind to analytical thought, considered reflection and decision making. Historical Chichester is the perfect location to bring the past back to life.
