Overview

BA Hons History at Northumbria offers a high level of flexibility as well as thorough training in the skills of the professional researcher.

Alongside a small number of core modules, you can pick and choose from stimulating options that cover a rich tapestry of history, always pursuing your particular interests. These could relate to a mix of periods as well as sub-disciplines like political, cultural, intellectual, social and economic history. Northumbria’s breadth of expertise has helped us to be ranked in the top 20 of UK institutions for research in history, according to the government’s 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

The course deliberately teaches transferable skills, with options for a work placement as well as a period of study abroad. The first year emphasises the acquisition of research and communication skills, the second employability and project management, and the third independent learning on a research project of your choice.

Career opportunities

History graduates are especially valued because of their transferable communication skills and the way they evaluate evidence and think critically. You can use your history degree as a platform to launch a career in areas such as finance, law, journalism and the civil service. There are also jobs in museums and archive management, or you can consider becoming a professional researcher by studying further at the postgraduate level.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
