Religion is also a key factor in any study of the history of Europe, especially Europe in the Middle Ages, which is an area of particular expertise in the School of History at Kent. The History and Religious Studies (Hons) program is offered at University of Kent.


Religion is a vital element in human culture, and today religious issues are everywhere - from current affairs and international events, to the history of ideas, art and literature. Studying History you learn how to approach and critically analyse many types of source within their proper contexts and to assess their impact both in the past and today. Both these subjects follow a modular structure, allowing you to tailor your studies to your own interests.

Taking the History and Religious Studies (Hons) program offered at University of Kent, you gain an appreciation of world history through a focus on one of humanity's most powerful organising forces.


Graduates are able to demonstrate self-motivation and the ability to work independently, demonstrating to potential employers that they respond positively to various challenges and that they can work to tight schedules and manage heavy workloads. You develop excellent skills of analysis, frequently assessing multiple and often conflicting sources before condensing opinions into concise, well-structured prose.

Programme Structure

  • On most programmes, you study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also be able to take ‘elective’ modules from other programmes so you can customise your programme and explore other subjects that interest you.
