University of Huddersfield has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
On this course you’ll learn how to combine historical context with current awareness of major global trends and challenges, and evaluate evidence of various kinds. Your choices on the History side are historically and geographically diverse, and you can focus on what fascinates you the most. In your Economics studies, we’ll introduce you to the basics of economics, both macro and micro. You’ll then apply these to contemporary social, economic and historical problems, such as poverty and inequality, high unemployment and rising pollution. Hopefully you’ll figure out some of the solutions too.
- History has a 94% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2018).
- Each year you’ll be able to choose option modules to focus on topics that fascinate you most.
- You’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable real world experience. In your second year you’ll also have the chance to go on a work placement, designed to enhance your skills ready for employment.
- Innovative assessments such as analysing children’s speech development, pitching an idea for a historical video game or creating a visitor trail for a national museum.
