History undergraduate courses

Our degrees offer an outstanding experience for students who want to pursue their interest in history, with options varying from a BA in History to dual degrees with a wide range of subjects.


Single honours degrees

Dual degrees

Dual honours degrees allow you to combine your study of history with another complementary subject. You will normally spend an equal amount of time and credits in each subject.

Major/Minor option

On many of our dual degrees, you can also choose to specialise more in one subject, by dividing your degree so that one-third (40 credits) is the minor subject and two-thirds (80 credits) are the major subject.

You do not need to decide before arriving in Sheffield, and have the option to change the major/minor balance or switch back to a 50:50 split when choosing your modules for each year of the degree.

Please note that this option is not available for dual degrees with Politics, Japanese and Chinese.
