Course Description

There is politics in almost everything we do. It is the study of power: who gets it, why they seek it and by what means they obtain it. Its principal focus is on power relations among individuals, social groups and nations. Studying history will help you to understand how past affects every aspect of our lives, - from the language we speak, to the politics of race, gender, religion and identity. The Joint Honours degree will provide you with the skills to explore the social and political landscape of human consciousness throughout time and place. You will discover how people lived, and how they perceived and interacted with the world around them. Investigating past events, you will encounter war, injustice, new frontiers, political upheaval, ancient civilisations, invasions, conspiracies, catastrophes and revolutions. You will gain a firm grasp of political and current affairs, understand the news headlines, seeing beyond them to the real issues of politics, and be in a better position to comment upon and understand what the politicians are really saying.

The Joint Honours degree offers you an opportunity to study two subjects at degree level, enabling you to benefit from high quality teaching across more than one subject.

A wide variety of options mean you can pursue your own interests – with things becoming increasingly flexible as you progress through the course. With practical skills training, including advanced analytical approaches, as well as placement and study abroad opportunities – with all the experience that brings – this degree opens doors to a range of interesting and rewarding career possibilities and provides the skills to progress to higher research programmes.
