Overview

In this Joint Honours course you will develop your historical understanding while exploring some of the most thought-provoking aspects of contemporary culture and society.

History at Worcester offers you the opportunity to study the political, cultural and social history and introduces you to many of today’s debates surrounding approaches to historical study.

Politics is structured to provide a ‘people centred’ view of politics, past and present. This course examines people’s struggles to change worlds and how they develop their systems of government to solve problems and address injustice.

Career opportunities

History graduates from Worcester have progressed in recent years to take up work in a variety of career sectors, including teaching, accountancy, law, the media industries, local government, the police, retailing, administration, marketing, management and university lecturing and research. A growing number of our graduates progress to postgraduate research in history, both at the University of Worcester and at other universities. Thus, History remains an attractive and personally satisfying degree to study, with a strong track record of supporting graduate employability in a range of professional, managerial, administrative and media-related careers.

This course will enable you to demonstrate an interest in the fast-changing world and will provide you with the ability to generate ideas, to show initiative and to communicate with people from all walks of life. Our students have a good record of gaining employment, and Politics graduates work in many different sectors including teaching, the police, the probation service, housing, the civil service, local government and planning, as well as pressure groups, voluntary organisations, charities, the media, journalism and social work. During your time at Worcester you will have the opportunity to experience subject-related work experience and volunteering activities. In Year 2 you can choose to take a Politics work experience module. Spend time each week working with an organisation such as a local council, or a political party (or MP), or a campaign group, and then write a reflective assignment about your experience.
