Course summary

TEF Gold

Loughborough University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The joint honours degree courses allow you to gain a first-class exposure to two subjects and to acquire a broader range of skills than a normal single honours degree, whilst at the same time enjoying the benefits of specialisation.

The history part of the course spans the period from 1600 to the present, focusing mostly on the modern era. Its subject matter includes Britain and Continental Europe, but extends further afield to North America, the British Empire and China.

The politics element equips you to think critically and analytically about contemporary political issues and institutions. It allows you to understand the mechanics of a variety of political institutions, as well as topical issues, ideas and controversies.
