Modern History with Economics - University of Manchester

Modern History with Economics offers a flexible programme structure built around the study of modern history, economic history, economics and political economy. A key feature of the programme is the opportunity students have to develop and apply transferable skills drawn from studying related academic disciplines in history and the social sciences. Broad courses in history and economics constitute the core of the degree in the first two years, leading to more specialist options (in both history and economics/political economy) in Year 3, including 12,000-word independent research project. **The course aims to:** - Stimulate/extend students' interest in history, and to promote the critical study of the past; - Introduce students to the basics of economics, and their application to contemporary and historical problems; - Provide a broadly based and challenging curriculum offering exposure to the historical experience of Britain, Europe and other parts of the world since c.1500; - Extend students' powers of critical analysis and logical argument by applying them to historical interpretation; - Develop the interdisciplinary skill, in particular, of employing elementary economics to the formulation and analysis of historical problems; - To develop wider appreciation of the applicability of a variety of theoretical approaches and methodologies through the study of specific historical courses and periods and to enhance students' powers of applying such methodologies for themselves; - Develop students' capacity to communicate and present ideas lucidly in writing and orally; - Advance the ability of students to work independently and organise their schedules of personal study; - Provide the staff expertise and learning resources necessary to enable students to engage effectively with their studies; - Produce graduates with the transferable skills that enhance employability, for postgraduate study in history and other disciplines, and for further training, namely: self-management of independent, goal-directed work; capacity to analyse and ability to undertake research; powers of application of a social-science theory to `real-life' problems; and the ability to communicate the views lucidly that result from study of a problem. **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).
