History BA (Hons)

The History Department at York St John University is a close and supportive community, the lecturers are all approachable, understanding, and do everything they can to offer advice and encouragement to their students. I love living in York, everything is very accessible, and you’re surrounded by history at every turn, from Roman, to Medieval, to Modern.
