Are you interested in the evolution of political ideas and institutions, and the history behind the world’s major powers?

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

This degree is designed to help you understand the modern world and uncover the history of political thought. You’ll get an excellent grounding in both history and politics – covering a variety of historical periods, regions and ideas, as well as political theory, ideas and ideologies, and government and institutions.

You can choose from a range of option modules in both subjects, giving you the opportunity to explore specialist areas as diverse as colonisation in African history, the Russian Tsars and Bolsheviks, Britain in the Second World War, building the American Nation, comparative European politics, and the twenty-first century War on Terror.
