An opportunity to understand the modern world by studying relations between nations alongside their historical development.

Taught by experts from the Schools of History and Politics and International Relations, our new joint honours degree in History and International relations examines the close links between these two interconnected disciplines.

In the first year, you’ll receive a strong grounding in the range of methodological approaches used in both subjects, before studying either British or Global History. You’ll also choose from modules covering topics such as Politics in Action or an Introduction to Political Analysis.

From then on, you’ll have the freedom to choose from a range of module options in both subjects allowing you to explore areas such as the history of human rights, the origins of the Cold War, the War on Terror and the Coronavirus pandemic. You’ll also take modules designed to best prepare you for your final year dissertation which can be taken in either a History or International Relations subject.

TESTIMONIAL- The variety of modules offered was the main reason I chose Queen Mary. Within my degree I want to fully enjoy the modules, to be engaged to the highest level. I think the more you enjoy something the better you will do. - Adam Omar, History and Politics (2024)
