Program description

BA (Hons) History with Politics

By studying History with Politics, you can learn about political history as it’s being written. Your lecturers will be the authors of some of the books you’re using - and you’ll even get the chance to contribute to their research. And, as well as benefiting from the latest thinking, you can learn through a work placement - perhaps in archives, museums, local community groups, schools, a National Trust property, or by working for a political party or campaign.

You'll learn to understand how historical study has contemporary relevance, particularly in politics. Indeed, politics enhances your knowledge of history by contextualising these studies within the contemporary systems and philosophies of Westminster, Europe and the world.
