The History Department has a large and lively community of postgraduates, many of them part-time. With more than 30 full-time members of staff, we offer an exceptional variety of expertise and high quality of research. The Department also benefits from the University of London libraries and seminar programmes, and from proximity to the National Archives at Kew and the British Library in central London. Royal Holloway MA courses are taught either on the Egham campus or at the College's central London teaching site at 11 Bedford Square.
