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. The degree offers the combination of the theoretical and the empirical. The study of Politics equips you with the analytical tools to explore and understand societies, while the History element provides a vast historical laboratory in which to test the validity of the theory. Graduates have a wide range of research, analytical and evaluative skills, and are highly sought after by employers in media and marketing, education, the Civil Service and the Foreign Office, NGOs, international organisations such as the EU and the UN, and all sectors of industry.
