Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both History and Politics.
Politics dominates the news and affects our everyday lives, from how we choose those who govern us to how much tax we pay. However, today’s politics is shaped and moulded by historical events. In this course you’ll explore key historical trends while also assessing their impact on contemporary politics.
Whether interpreting acts of resistance, assessing economic change, describing environmental behaviour or understanding acts of oppression, an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we’re attempting to shape the future. Even societies in the very distant past can be highly relevant in this respect, which is why history and politics work very well together as subjects. You will learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your
understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives, and you will learn to use that knowledge to analyse the way in which societies govern themselves today. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches to history and politics, developing a range of methods used in their pursuit. You will take classes with internationally known experts and have a lot of flexibility and choice to specialise in the areas that most interest you.
The careers record of Keele History and Politics graduates is excellent. Common graduate destinations include political research, think-tanks, journalism, education, management, the civil service, local government and the voluntary sector as well as in the preservation, archival and museum sectors. Around a quarter of our graduates go on to take higher degrees with many choosing to stay at Keele.
