See the world differently

Studying History at Royal Holloway opens the way to a surprisingly wide world of the past, from Ancient Greece to modern China. For links to module descriptions, please see course structure. We’re proud of our diverse curriculum which offers strong support for gender, minority, and queer histories.

Our department is a warm and welcoming community where there is always something happening thanks to our award-winning History Society.

Making a difference

Our students have exciting opportunities to make a difference. For example, they have played a key role in The Citizens Project, a Heritage Lottery Fund project that runs a widely-watched YouTube channel and has influenced how History is taught in schools.
