Our courses cover almost all of human history, including British, European, American, Asian and African history, and range from the classical era (Greece and Rome), through the medieval and modern periods, to the late 20th century.

At Manchester, we are proud of our long tradition of developing the way that history is taught, approaches which have since been copied by universities around the world.


Ranked in the top ten UK history departments in the QS World University Rankings 2018, we have a global reputation with over 30 full-time academic staff.
