Course content

The research degree programme aims to provide students with an outstanding learning experience in a supportive community of learning. The department is known nationally and internationally for excellence in research and teaching and all of its staff are engaged in conducting their own research. Information on staff research interests and achievements can be found on the Departmental web pages.

The Chichester historians and political scientists offer a dynamic research environment through publications, organising and participating in national and international conferences (Germany, Portugal, Norway, France, Canada and the US). Recent conferences at Chichester include those held in collaboration with the Sussex Archaeological Society, the Multi-Directional Memory Conference, the D-Day Anniversary Conference, and the 30th Annual Conference for the Society for the Study of French History.
Other scholarly activity has included TV and radio appearances, interviews and specialist consultancy. The team publish widely in international research periodicals (e.g. Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History, Journal of Cultural and Social History, Yale French Studies, Journal of American Studies); and contribute to series published by all of the leading university presses, as well as many other long established academic publishing houses. Research students have been similarly active presenting papers at national conferences (British Library, Universities of Oxford, Brighton, Kingston, SOAS) and international conferences (Conference of European Association for American Studies, Holland) and publishing in a range of journals, including, the Bulletin of the Institute of Historical Studies.
