Top three reasons why you should study international history at LSE 

  1. We have a global approach – our students can select courses that cover different continents and regions between 1400 and the present day. Themes such as empire, trade, migration, diplomacy, and cultural practices run throughout our courses.
  2. Our teaching is delivered by world-class experts in their research field, who encourage our students to be inquiring thinkers, who are able to research, analyse and explain the history they encounter.
  3. Studying as a historian in London offers a wealth of resources including archives, major research libraries, historical institutes and museums.

Learn more about the Department and why you should study with us on our department pages.
