Course summary

On this course you’ll learn how to combine historical context with current awareness of major global trends and challenges, and evaluate evidence of various kinds. Your choices on the History side are historically and geographically diverse, and you can focus on what fascinates you the most. In your Economics studies, we’ll introduce you to the basics of economics, both macro and micro. You’ll then apply these to contemporary social, economic and historical problems, such as poverty and inequality, high unemployment and rising pollution. Hopefully you’ll figure out some of the solutions too. * History has a 91.6% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2020). * From year two onwards you’ll be able to choose option modules to get to grips with the topics that intrigue you. * You’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable real world experience. In Year 2 you will undertake a work placement, designed to enhance your skills ready for employment. * Innovative assessments such as pitching an idea for a historical video game or creating a visitor trail for a national museum. 90%-95% of graduates from these subjects are in work and/or further study fifteen months after graduating (HESA Graduate Outcomes 17/18, UK domiciled graduates). Communication and analysis are at the heart of both Economics and History, and it is precisely these skills which our creative teaching and learning will foster in you. We have a friendly, hands-on approach to delivering our courses, involving you in independent and team work, problem solving and digital literacy. Additional Costs: Placements The nature and suitability of your work placement is decided in consultation with your tutors. You are responsible for making your own arrangements for any travel or incurred costs in relation to the placement module, or in relation to the optional placement year if you chose to undertake one as part of your degree.
