History courses

The Department of European Studies at Bradford is one of the oldest and best-established in the country, and History has always played a major part within it. History along with Politics is the major Social Science taught in the Department, with seven full-time members of staff.

The study of History has perhaps two main purposes. The first is the enjoyment and interest gained from studying the past for its own sake. The second is the light that a knowledge of the past sheds on present-day politics, society, economics and culture. That is the reason why History in our Department is studied in conjunction with other Social Sciences.

The other distinguishing feature of History in European Studies is that it is studied in conjunction with a language, which accounts for approximately one third of the course. The languages currently offered by the Department are French, German and Spanish. This combination not only offers the chance to deepen one’s familiarity with the history of particular European countries, but has also been shown considerably to enhance the employment prospects of graduates.

Since we are a Department of European Studies, the History we teach is essentially European History. Its main focus is the twentieth century, but the historians on the staff have published and researched widely on subjects ranging from the French and Russian Revolutions to the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich. The historians’ main concentration of expertise is on twentieth-century Germany, Eastern Europe and Russia.
