The BA History and Politics degree programme, taught jointly with Political, Social and International Studies, offers you the chance to study history within a political context.
As well as having access to the full range of modules offered within the School of History, you will also be able to choose from modules offered within Political, Social and International Studies which examine political issues and debate. One of our biggest priorities is giving you flexibility and choice- you are able to determine the overall balance between history and politics in the second and final years, allowing you to tailor your learning to your interests.
You will also have the opportunity to specialise in a particular country or region, exploring how politics relates to an historical period or a particular nation. You might wish to combine study of the history of Nazism with contemporary Germany, Russian Politics with the history of Stalinism, or British history with international relations.
