Education and Social Science considers the value and purpose of education both for individuals as well as wider society, and addresses issues of social justice, educational and social disadvantage. The programme has a strong sociological, political and philosophical focus to provide students with the critical tools required to interrogate policy debates and government initiatives. The History programme is designed to give you a broad overview of historical development and change over time, as well as the opportunity to study particular periods and historical themes in more detail. It is also designed to enable you to develop the analytical and communication skills which are vital for gaining rewarding graduate-level employment. It can be taken either as a Single or Joint Honours subject. You can follow a general programme of modules or follow concentrations in Early Modern History, Modern History, Cultural History or non-European History.
