Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Kent has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

In many ways, a study of History is incomplete without a study of Politics. Similarly, a study of Politics is incomplete without an understanding of History. Each, inevitably, informs the other. This ever-popular cross-disciplinary programme allows you to take a 50:50 split of History and Politics modules, gaining broad-ranging knowledge, valuable transferrable skills and an insight into the complexities of human behaviour and society from these complementary subjects. Both subjects follow a modular structure allowing students to tailor their studies to their own interests.
