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 .
Oxford historians move on to careers in fields as varied as the law, investment banking and consultancies, advertising, accountancy, the Civil Service, publishing, journalism and the media, global charity work, museums, librarianship and archive work, and teaching. Recent Ancient and Modern History graduates include a civil servant, a librarian and a charity campaign manager.
