History

Summary

BA History at Roehampton gives you the chance to study over 3,000 years of our past.

Taught by our team of world-class historians, you will cover a vast range of periods, from the rise and fall of the Greek and Roman Empires, to the collapse of Communism, and the events that laid the path to Brexit.
Geographically, the curriculum is equally expansive, taking in the Americas, the British World, Europe, Africa and Asia. Interested in Islam and Women? The Vikings? Or early modern magic? This degree lets you focus on the areas of history that inspire you most.

You'll get real-world experience, and work placement and internship opportunities, and build the skills needed to open the door to many rewarding careers. Working alongside world-class scholars, you will also develop your own identity as a historian and your own research interests. If you're looking to understand the issues the world faces today by learning from the past, and are ready to develop the skills that employers seek, this degree is for you.

History graduates have vital skills that make them attractive to employers, including confidence, adaptability and the capacity to work with people from all walks of life.
