Program description


Someone once observed that “history is life’s teacher.” Put another way, the study of the past is a fundamental guide to understanding past, present and future. In the words of historian Priya Satia, “history is always about questions of contemporary interest, always ‘applied’’ to addressing contemporary issues”. Studying History at King’s empowers students with relevant knowledge about the past – about how we got to now. We help to equip students with essential skills for navigating the challenges and opportunities of today’s world: critical thinking, evidence-based analysis and interpretation, as well as effective verbal and written communication skills.

  • Recent studies show that professional schools and employers value History graduates for their ability to think and work both independently and collaboratively. One study conducted in the UK predicted a ""golden future"" for History grads.
  • An American study found that History was the most common undergraduate degree held by Forbes 500 CEOs.
  • Year after year, a disproportionate number of History graduates are successful applicants to law, business, and other professional schools.

History graduates are prized for their broad-minded approach to problem-solving, for their capacity to gather and analyze vast quantities of information, and for knowing how to communicate what is essential.

No wonder, then, that King History graduates flourish wherever they go. Our graduates excel in a diverse range of exciting, meaningful careers in the private and public sector: business, law, education, and journalism, to name just a few.
