We offer a range of programmes for the study of History at undergraduate, master's and postgraduate research level.
Members of Manchester's Centre for Economic Cultures are passionate about engaging students in the study of the economic past, in all its diversity. We collaborated to publish History and Economic Life: A Student's Guide to Approaching Economic and Social History Sources (2020).
