History and Politics University of Westminster, London

Undergraduate

This course allows you to study two of the most popular arts and social sciences disciplines in combination, taking half of your modules in each area. The politics set offers you an in-depth understanding of comparative, institutional, international and theoretical approaches, while the history set gives you a firm grounding in the major developments in British and European affairs over the past two centuries.

Based in the heart of London, you will make the most of the city’s resources, interacting first-hand with your subject matter through field-walks and visits. Aside from learning the main themes, skills and approaches in both disciplines, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules, which give you a truly global outlook: history lectures explore the modern histories of Europe, China, Africa, South-East Asia and America to offer British, European and international perspectives, whilst Politics modules focus on Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia and America. You can study an elective module from across the university in each year, and also take a credit-bearing history or politics internship or language class.
