An excellent subject combination for students who wish to expand their debating skills. The History element of the degree is designed to develop students understanding of historical processes through the study of a range of periods and geographical contexts, promoting awareness of continuity and change. Modules span the early modern period to the present and embrace two identifiable strands: British Social and Cultural History and Family and Community History. The study of Ethics explores a number of challenging moral dilemmas, e.g. within scientific research, the legal system, personal relationships and the ways we treat both our own bodies and those of other species.
