History

Choose from a range of History degrees including undergraduate, Masters and PhD courses.

At Sussex, history matters. To understand our changing world, you’ll learn how the past shapes the present.

Choice is key to our history degrees, where you study world history from the 16th century to today.

You’ll get hands-on experience using historical evidence from online and archive sources. The Keep, an archive conservation building next to our campus, houses:

  • the Mass Observation Archive
  • the German Jewish Family Archives.

A Sussex history degree gives you transferable skills for today’s workplace. And you’ll develop the knowledge needed to become a practising historian.
