More about the course
So it is a popular subject for both students and employers: our history graduates go into business, finance, consultancy, journalism, advertising, law, government service, teaching and research – any career which needs adaptability, clear thinking, and problem-solving. Christ Church has one of the largest history groups in Oxford, and it is exciting to be part of it. We admit twelve new students each year – producing a lively, varied, interactive set. We have three specialist college tutors and so, together with the college lecturer, we can teach a large part of the syllabus in college, and offer close personal attention. We have an outstanding history collection in the college library, and funds to help with research projects and discovery trips. And, of course, historians share in all the other benefits of a large, attractive, and well endowed college.
History combines well with other subjects and Christ Church welcomes applications for Ancient and Modern History, History and Modern Languages, and History and Politics.

Ancient and Modern History
This course enables students to study history from the Bronze Age Mediterranean and Near East, through the Roman Empire, middle ages, and early modern period, right up to British, European and world history in the present day.
History and Modern Languages
The study of History and Modern Languages develops students’ awareness of differing political, cultural, social and economic structures in past societies.
History and Politics
The History and Politics course aims to bring together complementary but separate disciplines to form a coherent and stimulating programme. The degree not only enables students to set contemporary political problems in their historical perspective, but also equips them to approach the study of the past with the conceptual rigour derived from political science.
Classical Archaeology and Ancient History (CAAH)
CAAH is the opportunity to study the history, archaeology and art of societies and cultures of the ancient Mediterranean. The course lasts three years and involves work both in university classes led by an archaeologist and historian, and in tutorials.
