The School of History and Heritage is based in the College of Arts, located at the University’s main Brayford campus with a view dominated by the magnificent Cathedral. Staff in the school currently work in history, conservation, philosophy and art history. We have expanded our portfolio to deliver programmes in Art History and History, Classical Studies, Philosophy and American Studies over the past two years.

Art History and History is currently taught as an undergraduate BA. There are also two thriving taught MA programmes in Historical Studies and Medieval Studies and a growing number of postgraduate research students. There is a strong and growing team of historians with particular strengths in medieval, Mediterranean, gender and 20th century political and cultural history (Britain and Europe). The team performed very well in REF 2014 with 35% of outputs rated 4*.

The School itself offers a friendly and welcoming working environment. There is a strong collaborative research culture with regular seminars and ongoing support for research activity, including funding for conference activities.
