This multidisciplinary degree course allows you to gain a first-class exposure to three subjects and to acquire a broader range of skills than a normal single-honours degree, whilst at the same time enjoying the benefits of specialisation. The course covers the three traditional strengths of the department by intertwining the study of domestic political debates, modern history and international affairs. It explores the motivations of people in the past, the causes and legacy of key historical events, and it analyses key actors, flows, and events in today’s global arena. It blends reflection on the past with critical analysis of the present. The Politics element of the course focuses on the topics of democracy and government, and gradually allows you to narrow your focus on contemporary challenges ranging from political protest to terrorism. The History element begins with broad survey courses, leading on to introductions to the history of individual countries or world regions and finally offering specialist case studies. The International Relations element focuses on inter-state relations and international organisations, analysing the main actors of the global arena, and gradually focusing on more specific themes including the European Union and international conflict. During this course assessment may include; essays, exams, quizzes, video presentations, seminar diaries, online source annotation, source analysis, research papers, oral presentations and group work.
