Modern History and Politics (Including Year Abroad)

You obtain a thorough grounding in the fields of modern history and politics, and will consider how the two disciplines can be integrated. In your history modules you investigate the intersection of the ideas, cultures and economics of different people over the last 200 years of western history. You also investigate the scope of political science as a field of inquiry, and the methods used by political scientists, in order to explore questions concerning both what does occur in politics, and what should occur in politics.Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable. There is a range of relevant options to choose from in both departments and you choose to write your final-year dissertation in either politics or history.
