At Northumbria we offer a high level of academic rigour as well as thorough training in analytical skills.
Core modules provide a grounding in both history and politics as well as the links between them. Optional modules offer considerable flexibility to pick and choose from a range of periods and themes: from the later Roman Empire to the politics of oil and global warming.
The course teaches transferable skills, with options for work placement as well as a period of study abroad. The first year emphasises the acquisition of research and communication skills, the second employability and project management, and the third independent learning through a research project of your choice.
History and Politics graduates are especially valued because of their transferable communication skills and the way they evaluate evidence and think critically. You can use your degree as a platform to launch a career in areas such as finance, law, journalism and the civil service. There are also jobs in museums and archive management, or you can also consider becoming a professional researcher by studying further at the postgraduate level.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
