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. Fruitful comparisons between societies abound, and the methods by which we study them are mutually illuminating. Regent’s typically admits one AMH student each year.
When applying, are students asked to submit written work?
Yes. Please see the Faculty website for further information.
What proportion of the teaching in AMH is done by Regent’s tutors and fellows?
A good proportion of our teaching is carried out in-house, especially tuition in various periods of Modern History and in ancient Roman history.
Who are the main tutors on the course?
Dr Leif Dixon, Dr J Alison Rosenblitt, Dr Yvonne Cornish and Mr Matthew Mills.
How are the students in AMH mainly taught?
Students are mostly taught in tutorials (of 1-3 students). Some options are taught in College classes.
What can a first year student expect to study?
Ancient and Modern History offers a particularly flexible first-year. Students take four modules for Prelims, and these can lean 3-1 either to the ancient or the modern side. However, a majority of students tend to choose 2-2 or 3-1 towards Modern History. Overall, the AMH course is structured in a very similar manner to the Modern History course, but with extra ancient history options. This makes for a very appealing course. Students generally enjoy the extra range and flexibility of the AMH set-up, whilst benefitting from the communal aspects of integration into the much larger Modern History school.
