We are home to renowned academics who lead international research, but who are also engaged in innovative teaching and in bringing History to the wider public. This means your study will be linked with cutting'edge research and with teachers who will convey the uses and applications of historical knowledge. Our degrees are rigorously planned for quality and to ensure your intellectual development. They are also full of choice and flexibility to allow you to tailor your studies to suit your interests. For example, you could study political history alongside the history of art and architecture, or to combine history with film or literature. Many of our modules include teaching outside of the classroom, with trips to museums and galleries. You will have access to the extensive resources for study, at the Queen Mary Library, the University of London Library (Senate House), and at other libraries within the University of London. The advantage of our London location is ready access to a wealth of other libraries, museums and archives. Our links with the world outside the University will enable you to really bring your degree to life by enjoying a varied programme of social and cultural events, including talks by distinguished speakers, film screenings, literature discussion groups, museum trips and more.
