Course summary

Summary Our History with Psychology BA (Hons) allows you to realise the enormous variance of human experience, both individually and as societies. Explore events through history and how they have been communicated from various perspectives and to varying degrees of truth. Develop your understanding of how history shapes our present-day political systems and economic infrastructure. Complement these studies with your Psychology minor, which trains you in the major areas of the contemporary scientific discipline, allowing you to understand how the personality dynamics and behavioural characteristics of key figures through history have played a part in shaping our modern world. This innovative degree will give you critical thinking, communication and psychosocial expertise, transferable to careers in public and private sectors such as policymaking, marketing and communications, civil service and business.
