History and Politics

Our History and Politics BA is the perfect course for anyone who’s interested in the way history and politics impact on one another; it’s an exciting opportunity to study history within a broad sense of political context.    Your degree will be taught by experienced and internationally-renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, putting you at the forefront of the historical and political debate. And the structure of the degree is very flexible, so you can choose your preferred balance between history and politics in your second and final years, and tailor your learning to your interests.   You’ll gain a foundation in the history of various nations, which will enable you to understand better the complexities of global politics and diplomacy today. You’ll have the chance to investigate the political motivations of those who held power in the past and those who hold power today. And you’ll be able to take a long view on some of the most influential and important current debates today. What, for example, is the historical background to political notions of gender, class and race? What about current theories of globalisation, in the context of the impact of the industrial revolution?     **Course Structure** **Year 1** Year one will equip you with the major skills required in both History and Politics. You’ll begin the course with compulsory modules, which will help you build a solid foundation of knowledge in political ideas and topics in contemporary politics, as well as modules that will provide a background to modern history, historical thinking and historical methodologies.   **Year 2** In your second year you’ll be able to decide whether to weight your learning more in favour of one discipline or the other – or to keep it evenly balanced.   There are no compulsory modules in this year, so you’ll be able to tailor your learning to the topics that most interest you, while honing your skills of academic enquiry and argument. You’ll be given access to a broad and exciting range of optional modules offered across both Schools, many of which are complementary. For example, you could elect to study topics such as an introduction to the European Union alongside the history of modern Germany.   You can also choose to study abroad in your second year, learn a new language, and/or broaden your studies by taking modules chosen from those offered by other disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.   **Year 3** In your final year you will become more focused, selecting modules from a range offered by the School of History that include topics such as Stalin and Stalinism, and the Third Reich.     In addition to your chosen area of focus you’ll study two advanced modules from either History or Politics covering topics such as politics and popular culture or youth in modern Europe. Alternatively, you could opt to take just one advanced module and also write a dissertation on a historical or political topic of your choice.   **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
