History and Sociology - University of Manchester

On this course you study past and present societies from both a historical and a sociological perspective, comparing and contrasting these two important ways of studying human society. You will have the opportunity to study a wide historical and geographical range of periods and cultures. You will gain a thorough sociological understanding of contemporary and practical social affairs and an understanding of their origins and development. **Aims** The History and Sociology degree is designed to give students a unique training in two academic disciplines. By combining the skills and insights of History and Sociology, students achieve a thorough induction into studying the past alongside the approaches and theoretical frameworks relating to the study of society. The dual disciplinary approach allows students to offer in depth analytical studies to understand the workings of societies and cultures across different chronological periods and geographical areas. The History and Sociology degree offers formal training in the skills, methodologies and theories relating to both disciplines. The degree is designed to develop students' knowledge of both of these disciplines, especially through core modules at level 1. In particular History in Practice equips students with the key intellectual tools for historical study at university level, and Researching Culture and Society develops student's understandings of a range of quantitative and qualitative research methods. Students are offered a wide range of modules to choose from, which develop their knowledge of both disciplines, enhance students' skills in analysis and critical reasoning and their understanding and application of theoretical approaches to the past and present. Taught by Faculty members, who are both dedicated teachers and world-leading experts in their fields, and with whom students interact daily in lectures, seminars and one-to-one meetings, the course aims to develop a range of essential and transferable skills. By writing essays, projects and dissertations on both subjects, students learn how to develop their ability to write, present and discuss complex ideas and arguments. By engaging with an exciting and demanding course students also develop habits of self-management, independence and collaborative work. In addition, History and Sociology students can develop further their interests by joining a wide range of student-led societies, including the Sociology and History Societies, as well as many others focused on politics, media or sport. **Special Features** Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Erasmus Exchange scheme (in Europe) and the Worldwide Exchange scheme (e.g. USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore).
