"Students are not just a number or lost in the system...lecturers know your goals and what it is that interests you personally in order to make your time at Newman more personal and, ultimately, more rewarding".
Emma Heatherley (Class of 2016)
Welcome to History at Newman University. We offer wide-ranging courses and expertise spanning ancient civilisations to the burning issues of the present day.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes feature a broad range of topics that allow you to tailor your degree around the issues that really interest you. You can study topics ranging from ancient Rome to Tudor England, the British Civil Wars to the French Revolution and Victorian political culture to modern American history.
The Department of History is staffed by world-leading experts in their field. Our size means that we can communicate this expertise in a much more personal way. So, in addition to small-group teaching through seminars and tutorials, we know our students as individuals. This allows us to support our students, develop their skills and discuss work in a way that larger departments cannot. Our focus on student support and the attention we can provide contribute to our outstanding student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey where we are consistently ranked as one of the top History departments in the UK.
