About

The History (Ancient and Modern) course from the University of Oxford enables students to study history from the Bronze Age Mediterranean and Near East, through the Roman Empire, middle ages and early modern period, right up to British, European and World history in the present day. Fruitful comparisons between societies abound, and the methods by which we study them are mutually illuminating.

Overview

The Oxford Classics and History Faculties are world-famous for teaching and research. The people who will teach you here will often be leading researchers in their field, with lecturers encouraged to put on new courses which reflect their own interests. Oxford also possesses exceptional library provision for History in the Bodleian Library, the History Faculty Library, the Sackler  and the Weston Library’s special collections, as well as a dedicated Classics centre. The History (Ancient and Modern) course is offered at the University of Oxford .
