The two subject 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 and combines it with the study of another discipline or language (see the combinations tab for details).

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.

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. The maximum number of history courses a three year joint degree student may take is eight, and the minimum number is four. However, for a well balanced degree students are advised to choose between five and seven history courses. Some language degrees (including joint degrees in history and a language) are taught over the usual three years. Others are taught over four years, including a year abroad. In the case of the latter, the minimum number of history courses that must be taken is the same as that for a three year degree, i.e. four courses. During the year abroad for language training, no history courses are required. Year 1: Students take 2 of a number of introductory courses. These include "H101" Approaches to History 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. The exception here is that in some language degrees, students are required to take three courses in that language in the first year. In those cases, students taking a joint degree in history and a language will take just one history course, either a regional introductory history course or H101 Approaches to History. Year 2: Normally, students will take two history courses at intermediate level, a Group Study Project is also an option. Year 3: Depending on the number of history courses taken in the second year, students will take between one and four courses at advanced and intermediate levels. A 400 level dissertation course may be taken in conjunction with a 300 level course to form a Special Subject although for joint degree students the Special Subject is not compulsory. Students also have the option of doing an Independent Study Project (ISP: 10,000 word essay on an approved topic). Typical Programme Detail Year 1 2 Introductory Histories (100 level courses) 2 units from the other subject Year 2 2 units chosen from: H200 level courses 2 units from the other subject Year 3 2 units chosen from: A 'Special Subject': a 300 level taught course with EITHER a linked 400 level Study Project or an Independent Study Project Intermediate (200 level courses) An approved 'open option' 2 units from the other subject
