Undergraduate Courses

The most striking thing about History at Oxford is its extraordinary range and the enormous amount of choice offered to students (there are over 100 different options), reflecting the breadth of interests and expertise among those who teach here. Oxford is rightly celebrated for the broad chronological sweep of its courses. You can study options on any part of British and European History from the fading years of the Roman Empire to the present day.

All undergraduates are encouraged to confront periods and concepts beyond those encompassed by a narrow chronological focus. Students are given the opportunity of seeing things not just in their immediate context but also in the perspective of long-term developments.

History can be studied either as a Single Honours course, or as a Joint Honours course in combination of one of five other subjects: Ancient History, Economics, English, Modern Languages, and Politics.
