Why study History at Nottingham?

We aim to produce scholars who understand historical skills of logical thinking, of evaluating evidence within an analytical and conceptual framework, and of using this evidence to present coherent arguments. Teaching combines a range of traditional methods with a strong commitment to student-centred, active learning, and to engagement with a wide variety of historical primary sources, from manuscripts to film.
