About the course
With our History and Philosophy BA, you explore alternative approaches to both fields, as well as the expected ones.
Philosophy encourages you to consider universal questions about human behaviour. And in History, you look at how these have affected society at key moments in time.
At Sussex, you join a politically and philosophically engaged community. Plus you benefit from resources such as The Keep - a state-of-the-art archive centre that's close to campus.
Sussex graduates change the world. Our students become the leaders of the future, making discoveries, improving lives and changing things for the better.
Study with us to join a welcoming and inspiring community of staff and students from more than 140 countries.
We shape the world from a fantastic campus on the UK’s beautiful south coast.
We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, so you can step off campus to explore the hills and woodlands of the South Downs. The vibrant, colourful and creative seaside city of Brighton & Hove is just nine minutes away.
With Brighton voted the happiest city in England for students, (Student Living Survey, Sodexo, 2018) there can be few better places to study.
