Why choose this course?
Our course is modern, with a focus on British and European history, but there are many opportunities to study American, imperial and global history as well. A distinctive element of the degree is its focus on the extraordinary history of London.
You’ll explore the streets of the capital, learn how to conduct your own research in London’s unique archives, and graduate as a well-trained and experienced historian, ready to launch yourself into the world of work in careers such as the media, education, law and the Civil Service – or into further study or research.
You’ll also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
Research underpins much of our teaching, and we encourage you into a community of scholars, through teaching which will enthuse and inspire you.
