More about the course

The Oxford Classics and History Faculties are world-famous for teaching and research. Most of the people who will teach you here will be leading researchers in their field, and lecturers are encouraged to put on new courses which reflect their own interests. The study of original sources forms the basis of Further and Special Subjects.

At Christ Church, your work is divided between lectures and classes, tutorials (one or two a week), and private study (including preparing essays for your weekly tutorials). Oxford historians typically move on to careers in fields as varied as law, investment banking and consultancies, advertising, accountancy, the Civil Service, publishing, journalism and the media, global charity work, museums, librarianship and archive work, and teaching. 

Students interested in this course might also like to consider Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, Classics, other History courses, or History of Art.
