Overview

Studying History (Hons) at St Mary's University, Twickenham, London will also give you the opportunity to develop skills such as conducting research, analysing evidence, and communicating your findings that employers look for in a range of careers. Our recent graduates have gone on to further study or to work in fields as diverse as law, finance, marketing, public relations, teaching, museums and heritage.

You will immerse yourself in histories of Britian, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and America, ranging from the medieval period to the present day. You will study the rise and fall of states, the causes of wars and revolutions, and social and political movements.

You will be doing much more than learning what happened, you will be interpreting sources, explaining how and why societies change, and thinking about why that is important, and by doing this you will be equipping yourself to analyse the many challenges of today’s world.

Careers

Our History degree offers graduates wide-ranging opportunities from publishing and banking, management training to the media, tourism, law and teaching.

Relatively few people who study history become professional historians or teach history. Most seek occupations where they use the skills of analysis and clear expression that they developed in studying history
