How do we make sense of the events, ideas and problems of the past? History at Southampton challenges you to interpret history of past societies critically and imaginatively while developing critical thinking and communication skills for post-university life. The group project course provides an opportunity to work as a team and to present the results of your research to the general public.
This degree is one of the most popular of our combined history degrees. Core courses examine theories and methods in politics and history and a range of complementary options is available in both subjects. You can explore state structures and the political ideologies of British, European, American and Asian contexts alongside the modern history of these regions.
Southampton is ranked in the top three history departments for research, meaning our students learn from world-leading researchers (REF, 2014). We offer extremely flexible degree programmes, with a rare breadth of topics not commonly taught in British universities. Our unique archival resources include the Wellington, Palmerston and Mountbatten Papers, and the Parkes Archives specialising in Jewish history.

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
