Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Economics and History. Keele has been delivering courses in economics for over 50 years: this is a well-established, well-respected programme which will prepare you for a range of rewarding careers. Economics can be studied as a Single or Combined Honours programme and can be studied alongside subjects such as Mathematics, Politics or Sociology. You’ll learn techniques for addressing real world problems and policy-related issues, and explore the behaviour and performance of households, businesses and governments. In considering issues of social importance and policy relevance, and examining real world phenomena, you’ll combine theoretical analysis with up-to-date knowledge about current issues. You’ll use professional software tools to analyse and interpret real economic data and to confidently present complex findings to a range of audiences.

An Economics degree from Keele will open up a range of opportunities in business and government. Graduates might take up careers as economists, perhaps in the City or with the prestigious Government Economic Service. They might work in commerce and industry, in education or in local government. With or without further study, you might go into banking, insurance, accounting, management consultancy, or the NHS, for example. You might work as an investment analyst, statistician or financial adviser. In our History course, you will develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence
on the societies of today and tomorrow.

At Keele, you’ll study the way humans
have always tried to organise their lives – physically and conceptually,
individually and together. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where
we are today and how we’re attempting to shape the future – even
societies in the very distant past can be highly relevant in this respect.
You’ll learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding
of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious
perspectives. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches
to history and the range of methods used in its pursuit.
You’ll take classes with world-renowned experts who love their subjects
and love to teach too.

Studying History at Keele will provide you with important skills to
carry through the rest of your life. You’ll develop the sort of enquiring,
open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for.
Some career options may require further study, but you could go on to
work as a teacher, librarian, archivist, museum conservator, heritage
manager, barrister, solicitor, civil service administrator, journalist, or a
politician’s assistant or researcher.
