About the course
Variety is at the heart of our vision of history here at Hull. Historians are just as likely nowadays to study how people lived and loved in times gone by as they are to probe the stories of rulers and battles. At Hull, we recognise history in all of its diversity.
With our exciting choice of modules, you can follow your interests in social, cultural, art, global, indigenous, military, maritime and economic history, as well as archaeology. Our programmes are broad in conception, ranging from the Iron Age to the present day, so students are ideally placed to explore the key themes of continuity and change. The programme is delivered by active researchers and authors whose professional historical expertise underpins the modules they provide.
By placing America under the microscope, you will achieve a deep understanding of its history, culture and society. This understanding will be augmented through engagement with the historical and global influences upon America. American Studies develops intellectual flexibility by providing a multidimensional programme with a wide variety of approaches source materials, including non-traditional materials such as art, music, and film.
You’ll have access to a wealth of resources, both online and in the magnificently refurbished University Library. Specialist study resources are also available at the pioneering Hull History Centre, the distinctive Maritime Historical Studies Centre, and the world-leading Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE).
