Are you looking for a degree that combines the study of history and politics with 21st-century employability? At Northumbria we offer a high level of academic rigour as well as thorough training in analytical skills. Core modules provide a grounding in both history and politics as well as the links between them. Optional modules offer considerable flexibility to pick and choose from a range of periods and themes: from the later Roman Empire to the politics of oil and global warming. The course teaches transferable skills, with options for work placement as well as a period of study abroad. The first year emphasises the acquisition of research and communication skills, the second employability and project management, and the third independent learning through a research project of your choice.
