We have an international reputation for high quality and innovative learning and teaching, delivered by staff who are both committed to providing an outstanding student experience and who are at the cutting edge of research in their own disciplines. The Department of History is regularly ranked highly in the National Student Survey and we pride ourselves on our commitment to a diverse curriculum, small classes and research-led teaching. Like the rest of the University of Sheffield we are deeply committed to public outreach and to making our environment accessible for anyone able and willing to make the most of the opportunities available.
