The MA draws on the research and teaching strengths in the history of political thought and intellectual history from across the University of London. The Core Course is convened at UCL in Bloomsbury while specialist options are taught in the Schools and Departments of the relevant course leaders.

Students will also be able to draw on the rich library and research resources spread across the University of London. In addition to the College libraries, Senate House Library and the British Library, post-graduates will also have access to book collections and seminar events in the various specialist research institutes of the University, such as the Institute of Historical Research and the Warburg Institute. Other relevant library and research facilities in London include the Wellcome Library, the Dr. Williams Library, the National Archives, the British Library Newspaper Collection and the various seminars on offer in the University’s School of Advanced Study at Senate House.

The MA is jointly Administered by UCL and Queen Mary with the participation of the other colleges and institutes of the University of London. Students register at Queen Mary and are eligible for accommodation in its Halls of Residence.
