History including local and social history

placeholder

Short courses for the public

The broad sweep of courses in history encompasses British and European history from the decline of the Roman era to the present day, the ancient world, Asia and the far east and the Americas. Local and social history courses concentrate on cultural and social aspects of history, on different strata of society, and on teaching you to do research using local and national archives. 

Many of our courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification, such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
