History remains among the most fascinating and best loved of the arts and social science disciplines, and this is an exceptional degree which makes the most of our unique West End location. The course is modern, with a focus on British and European history, but there are many opportunities to study American, imperial and global history as well. A distinctive element of the degree is its focus on the extraordinary history of London.

You’ll learn inside and outside the classroom, on stimulating modules in political, diplomatic, social, cultural and military history, many of which are unique to Westminster.

You’ll explore the streets of the capital, learn how to conduct your own research in London’s unique archives, and graduate as a well- trained and experienced historian, ready to launch yourself into the world of work – in careers such as the media, education, the Civil Service and the Law – or prepared for research or further study.

You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Research underpins much of our teaching, and we encourage you into a community of scholars, through teaching which will enthuse and inspire you. A wide range of assessments includes essays and exams, document and artefact analysis, presentations, book reviews, portfolio preparation and mini-projects. Through these you will learn essential skills that will enhance your employability.

You can study an elective module from across the university in each year, and also take a credit-bearing internship in an archive, library or museum. Previous interns have had placements in the Imperial War Museum, the House of Lords Record Office and many other London institutions.
