Studied together, History and Sociology provide engrossing opportunities to investigate the origins, development and organisation of people’s social, cultural and political lives. They root understanding of the present in historical, contextual understanding of how societies have developed and been understood over time. Both subject areas offer their undergraduates lively subject cultures and numerous extra-curricular events, from visits to Worcester Crown Court, to seminars on Worcester and the English Civil War, to opportunities to get involved in staging academic conferences (the 2014 national Women’s History Network Conference, for example). They also aim to support your understanding of the range of opportunities that could be available to you on graduation. To this end, you can undertake work placements as part of your formal study, explore opportunities for postgraduate study and investigate, with those who are already following them, career paths in teaching, the cultural industries, the media and PR, youth and social work, human relations and the many other sectors in which history and sociology graduates find work.
