About This Course

Explore the relationships between contemporary politics and the history of the modern world as you learn from world experts, debating the very latest research and topics. On this degree you will learn to analyse carefully, to make well informed and well reasoned decisions, and to argue persuasively. You’ll also learn to challenge received wisdom, and develop different views, thoughtfully and respectfully. Above all, the joint study of these complementary disciplines will allow you to hone your skills of critical thinking.

Taught jointly between the School of History and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, you’ll get to experience the best of what both have to offer. For example, you will have the chance to explore the political context of war alongside the historical causes. You might focus on the theory behind globalisation whilst learning about its impact, or discover how the thinking behind communism relates to living under its realities.

Overview

Our History and Politics BA is the perfect course for anyone who’s interested in the way history and politics impact on one another. It’s an exciting opportunity to study history within a broad sense of political context.

Your degree will be taught by experienced and internationally renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, putting you at the forefront of the historical and political debate. And the structure of the degree is very flexible, so you can choose your preferred balance between history and politics in your second and final years, and tailor your learning to your interests.

You’ll gain a foundation in the history of various nations, which will enable you to understand better the complexities of global politics and diplomacy today. You’ll have the chance to investigate the political motivations of those who held power in the past and those who hold power today. And you’ll be able to take a long view on some of the most influential and important current debates today. What, for example, is the historical background to political notions of gender, class and race? What about current theories of globalisation, in the context of the impact of the industrial revolution?
