University of Roehampton
Our degree challenges students to think globally and comparatively to engage with cultural, social, economic, political, and intellectual history. At the same time, a practical focus on transferable employability skills is embedded into the curriculum throughout the degree to prepare BA History students for a variety of careers from education, heritage and the civil service to social justice and the third-sector.
The BA History programme is taught in a combination of lectures, seminar work and group work. This teaching format provides students with feedback by academic staff as well as peer-feedback from fellow students to enhance their learning experience.

You will graduate equipped to succeed in a wide range of careers, including publishing, broadcasting, law, the charity sector, accountancy and teaching.
History graduates have vital skills that make them attractive to employers, including confidence, adaptability and the capacity to work with people from all walks of life. It’s no wonder that history graduates become prime ministers, top lawyers, documentary film makers, museum curators, cultural heritage managers, teachers, economists, and business leaders.
Our careers team is available to support you from the start of your studies until after you graduate. They will help you build your CV, prepare for interview, and meet and learn from successful graduates working at the top of their careers. You’ll have lots of opportunity to work with our partners across London and beyond, and also to attend a Roehampton jobs fair where you can find out about graduate opportunities and meet employers.
All modules are core and are worth 15 credits unless specified.
