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 in the fields of the history of political thought and intellectual history from across the Colleges and Institutes of the University of London and 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. Studying the history of political thought is relevant to understanding the political change in the world today.

The programme brings together many of the outstanding merits associated with the institutions and research communities located throughout London, including those of Birkbeck College (Birkbeck), the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), King's College London (KCL), University College London (UCL), Queen Mary (QMUL), and Royal Holloway (RHUL).

Members of staff are drawn from Departments of History, Law, Modern Languages and Literature, Philosophy, and Politics within the University of London.

The programme is administered from Queen Mary, so you register as a Queen Mary student. Once you complete the programme, your degree will be a joint University of London-UCL MA.
