Politics and history are unique at Loughborough in that they are taught within the same department. Choosing to study Politics with History therefore allows you to draw on the entirety of the Department’s expertise and to construct a degree programme that suits your interests. Politics with History is a fantastic opportunity to pursue your interest in domestic and international politics, and to tackle some of the biggest questions in contemporary political life, while developing a deep and rich grasp of major events that have shaped modern politics and society. The course progresses from a foundation in the key concepts of political practice and theory to an in-depth understanding of more specialised subjects such as immigration, the EU, political violence, gender, justice and British politics, while introducing you to the major debates and developments in the field of history. The course is structured around a number of subject areas arranged into modules, each of which is worth a number of credits. It is intended by your final year that you will have successfully completed 360 credits to graduate, approximately two-thirds of which in Politics and one-third in History. During this course assessment may include essays, exams, quizzes, video presentations, group work, policy briefs, textual commentaries, source analysis, research papers and oral presentations.
