Pair these two subjects and you’ll explore the nature of reality, our knowledge of the world and the truth of our existence from its historical roots to its relevance today, with an understanding of the social and political landscape of human history.
From ancient civilisations and great empires, to terrible battles and the roots of our modern society, history is a vast landscape to explore and understand.
The past is part of our every day lives, shaping our world profoundly. Study history and you won’t just learn about what happened in the past. You’ll develop a better understanding of the how and why of the events that make us who we are. In other words – you won’t just discover the story, you’ll investigate and interpret its sources, impacts and meanings.
This degree programme offers a roadmap for exploring the social and political landscape of human history. You’ll look at a huge variety of times and places – immersing yourself in wars and famine and poverty, charting technological leaps and social progress, and unearthing conspiracies, catastrophes and revolutions. And that’s just in your first year.
Researchers work to search for new discoveries, fresh perspectives and unknown aspects of our history. With this degree we’ll give you the skills to do the same.
Looking at Philosophy from every angle – from Ancient Greece to modern life – you will examine and unravel the meaning of life, the nature of reality and more.
Philosophers seek the answers to questions of universal importance, working to tackle issues around the nature of reality, our knowledge of the world and the truth of our existence. Throughout this programme of study, you’ll confront these questions and more, exploring the full scope and richness of the subject, from its historical roots to its relevance today.
Our academic team are experts in their field, offering a supportive and stimulating environment for learning. Sharing their passion for the subject, they will guide you through the full range of philosophical questions and different philosophical traditions – giving you a rounded, balanced understanding of the subject.
