BA (Hons) History - Full time

History - the study, analysis and understanding of the past - is as important today as it has ever been and it continues to make vital contributions to how we comprehend and interact with the world around us.

Understanding past societies fosters emotional intelligence and allows us to appreciate the diversity and adaptability of human life. Understanding our pasts can help us to shape our futures and, crucially, help us shape those futures intelligently, insightfully, fairly, and with compassion. History is here and now as well as being there and then.

Students studying History at Goldsmiths have a great deal of choice over what to study, beginning with options in Year One. Our geographic scope covers Europe (including significant British expertise), the Americas, Asia and Africa. Chronologically, we have a strong focus on early modern and modern history, while also covering earlier periods.

We are pioneers in Black British History, Queer History and histories of sexualities, non-traditional military history, the history of emotions and senses, medical humanities and histories of medicine, histories of religion and dissent, histories of politics and power and histories of peoples and places.

The way we approach the study of History extends beyond the textual, with material culture, visual culture, oral history, and spatiality informing our research and our research-led teaching.

As part of the wider University of London, our students can take some subjects in their second and third years at other colleges including Birkbeck; King’s College London; Queen Mary; Royal Holloway; University College London. This means that History students at Goldsmiths have all the benefits of being in a department which is small enough to get to know them as individuals, while also having the opportunity to take options from a vast range of options.
