About us

School of Histories, Languages and Cultures

The School was formed in 2010 as part of a major reorganization of the academic structures across the University. Five departments covering more than a dozen subject areas joined together to make up the School. In our research and in our teaching we explore culture and society from the origins of humanity to modern day politics.

We are a community of scholars working across a vast number of disciplines and united by our research interests in history and heritage, languages and literatures, and power, conflict and conflict resolution.

The School undertakes the following areas of study:-

  • History
  • Irish Studies
  • Politics
  • Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
  • Cultures, Languages and Area Studies
  • Archives and Records Management


Welcome to the History department. We’re very proud of our international reputation for research and our innovative and student-centred teaching.

The most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) placed us in the top quartile position for 4* research (world-leading).

Join us and you’ll enjoy a stimulating and friendly environment in which to study the past.
