Our students have gone on to a range of successful careers in finance, business, media and not-for-profit organisations thanks to the unique teaching experience at Richmond. We spoke to those alumni as well as faculty members and employers about career prospects for future students graduating with a dually accredited liberal arts degree.

“I studied abroad at Richmond in the spring of 2011 as a history student from the University of South Carolina. People often say that their time studying abroad is one of the best in their lives; in my case, I can genuinely say that my time at Richmond changed the course of my life. The supervision I received from the academic staff gave me the confidence to pursue history at a more advanced level.
Similarly, I enjoyed studying in London so much I was inspired to return for both a Masters and PhD. To this day, I am still connected to Richmond through the mentorship of Prof Dominic Alessio, who has helped to guide me through a lot of major academic decisions and offered me the opportunity to publish with him. I owe my current life direction and many successes to the experience I had at Richmond all those years ago.”
“I studied the BA in History at Richmond from 2007 to 2011, after which I went on to further study as a graduate student at St Antony’s College, Oxford University, where I obtained a Master of Science degree in Russian and East European Studies.
Richmond provided me with broad knowledge and understanding of history and historical research methods, which has prepared me well for my current research position. I believe that the strength of Richmond’s history degree lies in the variety of the courses on offer and the excellence of the teaching. I learned a great deal from all of my tutors and during my studies I was not only motivated to improve my skills and acquire more knowledge, but also received good careers advice, as well as assistance with any academic issues.
I would advise any students to consider the history degree at Richmond as it will give them a chance to develop their their analytical skills and acquire knowledge in many different subjects, from which they will significantly benefit in today’s marketplace, in which employees need to be able to adapt and learn quickly. The greatest compliment that I can pay to Richmond is that the individual attention that I received often equalled and sometimes even exceeded what I got at Oxford. In the history programme at Richmond it is the personal touch that really makes a difference.
Currently, I am working as Research Assistant for Whitgift School’s upcoming WWI exhibition Remembering 1916: Life on the Western Front. My responsibility is to carry out all research on the wide range of WWI artefacts that will be displayed at the exhibition, as well to examine the historiography of the war, the perspectives of different nations, and any other pertinent subjects.”
