Excellent news for TCD's History Department as the latest QS University Rankings see History's standing climb from 48th place to 39th place in the world. It is a fantastic achievement, given the difficult economic circumstances in which the Department and College have operated for the past few years - and it reflects the commitment of all History's staff to the publication of cutting-edge research and research-led teaching. We are delighted too that three other disciplines in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences also rank in the top 50 - confirming Trinity's position at the forefront of Irish and world rankings in the arts and social sciences.
