Overview

In this Joint Honours course you will develop your historical understanding while exploring some of the most thought-provoking aspects of contemporary culture and society.

History at Worcester offers you the opportunity to study the political, cultural and social history and introduces you to many of today’s debates surrounding approaches to historical study.

Politics is structured to provide a ‘people centred’ view of politics, past and present. This course examines people’s struggles to change worlds and how they develop their systems of government to solve problems and address injustice.

Key Features

  • A wide range of modules in British, European and World History from the sixteenth through to the twenty-first centuries delivered by highly experienced, supportive and expert lecturers with international research profiles

  • The course encourages you to put aside your preconceptions about politics and consider people and the issues that are important to them

  • Opportunities to gain work experience, study abroad for a semester, be involved in volunteering activities and to act as a student representative and paid ambassador

  • Assessment is mostly by coursework and designed to enable you to acquire skills in research, analysis and communication – all of which are highly valued by employers

  • Ready access to the nationally significant resources of Worcestershire County Archives Service, which is based in The Hive (the university library)
