Course summary

BA History at LSE is a modern international history degree, with courses that span from the fifteenth century to the twenty-first century. You will gain an understanding of the forces that have shaped the past and those that are shaping the world we live in today.

This degree is distinctive for its international perspective on the past. It gives as much attention to political, economic, social and cultural developments within states as to the relations between them, in the belief that unless domestic and international history are studied together neither can be properly understood. The Department of International History is world renowned, and prides itself on delivering its ground-breaking research throughout the teaching programme.

BA History offers you a range of intellectual challenges: from broad survey courses, that look at particular themes or regions over a long period of time; to specialist courses that will develop your expertise in a topic, to the long essay or dissertation which allows you to pursue independent research in your third year. There is a very wide range of history courses to choose from, and there will be some opportunities to take outside options from other departments at the School. Throughout the degree, you will learn to analyse complex evidence from a variety of sources, to develop analytical powers and to present findings effectively. These skills and a broad knowledge of the development of the world around us are valued by many employers.
