We usually require a first or upper second class honours degree in History or another Humanities-related subject. We actively encourage applications from students who have developed an interest in any aspect of the history of political thought, intellectual history, or the history of philosophy. A recognised equivalent from an accredited international institution is also accepted. Applications from mature students and those with qualifications or experience not listed in our standard entry requirements are welcomed and will be considered on an individual basis.

This MA is an intercollegiate University of London programme jointly administered by University College London and Queen Mary University of London. The MA draws on the expertise of academic staff from the Colleges and Institutes of the University as a whole in the fields of the history of political thought and intellectual history. The programme offers advanced training in intellectual history, the history of political thought and the history of philosophy, spanning the period from the ancient world to the twenty-first century.
The MA also provides students with essential grounding in the various methods and approaches associated with the study of the history of thought developed over the past quarter-century in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. Members of staff are drawn from Departments of History, Law, Modern Languages and Literature, Philosophy, and Politics within the University of London.
