History and International Relations - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both History and International Relations. A key component of engaging with the world around us is understanding how humans have tried to organise their lives, societies and states. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future. History and International Relations covers key historical understandings and patterns in order to explain the social and political organisation of the past, today and tomorrow. You will learn the skills of a historian as you deepen your understanding of past eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You will also learn the skills of political analysis as you examine and explain the social, political, economic structures that have shaped the global arena and continue to impact on our daily lives. You will develop an understanding of the different approaches to both disciplines and the range of theories and methods used. History and International Relations encompasses a broad range of topics, from societies in the very distant past to contemporary migration, conflict, gender, security, and the EU, in order to understand how social and political organisation today comes from that of yesterday. The History and International Relations degree encourages you to develop as a pragmatic, analytical, and creative thinker – skills which are useful and highly valued in a large number of careers. Because of this, the careers record of Keele History and International Relations graduates is excellent. Some of the common destinations of graduates include political research, think-tanks, journalism, education, management, the civil service, local government and the voluntary sector, as well as in the preservation, archival and museum sectors. Many of our graduatesgo on to postgraduate study with many choosing to stay at Keele.
