Course summary

Across centuries and continents

History at Cambridge reflects the quality and breadth of interests of our expert historians and our course has been ranked among the top three of the world’s best for several years. The History degree gives you the opportunity to explore the past from many different angles, as well as the interaction between history and other disciplines, including politics, anthropology, sociology, economics and archaeology.

There is ample scope to pursue personal interests and experiment with different historical approaches. Specialist papers allow you to work with source materials as varied as Hollywood movies, Middle Eastern newspapers or medieval plague records. Our academics are active researchers, who publish books and scholarly articles as well as writing and speaking regularly for the wider public and media.

Studying History in Cambridge

Cambridge is an ideal place to study History. There are many libraries, offering a wealth of rare books and manuscripts to students as they embark on their own research projects. The city’s museums offer access to an even wider range of sources, unlocking the study of art,
material culture, and the history of science.

Careers and research

Cambridge historians acquire a range of skills that are attractive to employers: the ability to work independently, to evaluate evidence, and to present arguments clearly and persuasively.

In the past, our graduates have secured rewarding jobs across sectors, ranging from journalism and broadcasting to teaching and research, finance, consultancy, law and public administration.
