Overview

This integrated degree brings together the two complementary disciplines of politics and history. We combine the teaching of comparative 20th century politics and political ideas with modern global, political and social history, with a focus on Britain, Europe and America.
Examining past issues of conflict, poverty, marginalised communities, environment and gender throughout history will aim to enhance your understanding of today’s socio-political problems and associated decision-making.

We have an outstanding track record for graduate employability – an average of 97% employed or in further study six months after graduating. The development of academic and professional skills valued by employers is embedded into the course. You should improve your powers of reason, judgment, critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving.

Career opportunities

The skills and knowledge gained on this degree can lead to careers in government, business, media, lobbying, campaigning, voluntary organisations and international organisations like the United Nations (UN) or the European Commission.

Throughout the course, your academic study will be combined with broad-based skills development. When you graduate, you’ll have developed a range of transferrable skills, which are highly valued by employers, including excellent communications, critical thinking and analysis, strong presentation and listening skills.

Our Creative Futures employment team is on hand to offer tailored career and enterprise support if you wish to gain employment or take advantage of professional practice opportunities within course specific industries. You’ll have access to a designated employability officer who can advise you on career opportunities and give support to help you develop tailor-made job applications.
