Cambridge has one of the largest and best history faculties in the world and the course we offer reflects this quality and breadth of interest. Our course gives you opportunities to look at the past through many disciplinary lenses - including political, economic, social and cultural - and to explore how history has been influenced by other disciplines like anthropology, literature and archaeology.
There's ample scope throughout to pursue personal interests and experiment with different historical approaches. Some paper options are shared with other courses, such as Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic, and Classics, and specialist papers allow you to work with a variety of source materials such as music, art, cartoons and coins.
Some of the students who appear in our course films are also featured in the 60 Second Impressions series, which can be found at http://www.cam.ac.uk/60seconds/ - keep checking back as we'll be adding new films every couple of weeks!
