Newman's small class sizes and individual tutoring lead to outstanding National Student Survey results. Newman's History department has scored 100% for satisfaction in the 2015 National student survey.
A rich and varied course, history at Newman will take you on a voyage of discovery which spans from ancient civilisations to the burning issues of the present day. During the three years of the single and joint honours courses you will have the opportunity to study different topics from across the globe and with a variety of different approaches. 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 contributed to our outstanding 100% student satisfaction rating in the 2015 National Student Survey.
