Studying history at UCL gives you opportunities to explore the subject which are probably unrivaled anywhere else in the UK or Europe. This flexible degree programme offers an exceptional range of courses, enabling you to study ancient, medieval and modern history, from the third millennium BC to the contemporary world.

Our History BA degree gives you an extraordinarily flexible range of modules to choose from, from the ancient near east to modern China and pretty much everything in between. You can specialize or range as widely and freely as you want to. You could become a specialist in modern American or British history, medieval or early modern history. We’ll show you a range of different approaches to the past you never knew: imperial, cultural, social, gender, intellectual, legal, religious, administrative, political, material history. You’ll study with world-class historians teaching courses that are right on the cutting edge, doing your own research with them from the day you arrive to the day you leave. And throughout you’ll do all that in small classes and with one-to-one tutorials.
