The single honours history degree provides a high standard of training in history as an academic discipline and develops in students an in depth understanding and appreciation of the history of Africa and Asia.

The BA History course offers students different approaches to historical subject matter, interpretation and methodology—from the different perspectives of, for instance, economic history or the history of religion and culture. Undergraduate courses also follow a principle of progression.

The SOAS History Department is one of only a handful of universities to achieve the highest 5* rating in the 2001 government assessment of research in UK universities and unique in its expertise in African and Asian history.

Programa académico

The learning outcome of this degree is cumulative in terms of knowledge, and the courses aim at enabling students with cognitive skills essential to the understanding of the subject. This is reflected in the levels of the courses. In the first year, students take introductory courses only, moving on to intermediate level courses in the second year, and then to advanced courses (and perhaps another intermediate course or two) in their final year. In choosing their courses, some students choose to focus mainly on one region (Africa, Near and Middle East, Southeast or East Asia) or theme (Islam, modernisation and modernity). But others choose to range more broadly, exploring various themes and parts of the world. There are advantages to both approaches, developing an in depth knowledge of one particular region but also being able to place its history in comparative context. Students will take 12 units over the duration of their degree 4 units per year. A single full year course is equal to one full unit and, while no half unit courses (a course taught in term 1 or 2 only) exist in the undergraduate history syllabus, half unit 'open option' courses may be taken. Open option courses are courses from outside of this degree programme, typically language courses or non history courses in other departments. Open option courses may constitute part of your 12 units, however no more one unit of open option courses may be taken each year and it can only be taken if you have satisfied the history component of your programme. Year 1: Single subject students normally take 3 or 4 introductory courses. These include "H101" Approaching History (compulsory core course for single subject students), "H102" The History of the World and courses designed to introduce the student to the history of a specific region: Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, and South East Asia. In lieu of the 4th introductory course, students may instead choose to take a suitable open option course in another department Year 2: Students choose from a range of intermediate courses. Year 3: In the third year, all students take a 300 level module, focusing on the analysis of primary sources. Students can also take one or two units chosen from: (a) a 10,000 word dissertation (either the H500 Independent Study Project or the H400 level ‘long essay’, linked to the compulsory H300 level module; (b) one or more additional modules, providing the opportunity to acquire additional context and/or comparative material for their own research. Programme Detail Year 1 Four units, chosen from: Approaching History the core introductory course.
