FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE HISTORY WITH POLITICS:
• Chance to study a broad sweep of history, all the way back to antiquity through to the Middle Ages and right up to the present day.
• Modules based on lecturers' distinctive research expertise, such as the cultural history of cities, commemoration of war, 1980s Britain, history-writing and memory in the Middle Ages, and Cistercian monasteries.
• At a time when the world is faced with political and economic uncertainties, UWTSD's Politics and Economics course is a great way of gaining a further understanding and knowledge of political and economic systems, concepts and approaches whilst also studying another humanities subject of interest.
• We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions.
• You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
This degree combines the academic study of History Politics, and Economics.
The History programme at UWTSD allows students to explore many different political, social, economic, military and cultural aspects of history. It combines a study of change over time in broad sweeping survey modules introducing key aspects of the medieval and modern world, with more focused modules on topics such as Norman society and Crusades, the First World War and 1980s Britain.
Politics and Economics provide you with a fundamental understanding of the way societies and the world functions. It examines British, European, and global political structures alongside their surrounding social, economic, and philosophical frameworks. By doing so you will gain a broad range of skills that will prepare you for numerous career paths, principally within politics and business.
