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 95% student satisfaction rating (NSS 2019). * 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. * 95% of students from this course are in work or further study six months after finishing the course (DLHE 2016/17). 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.In combining History and Economics you will be developing a diverse range of critical, analytical and technical skills which will equip you to study a range of issues which have affected people and places through time. Economics will allow you to ask questions about how scarce resources are allocated and History enables you to develop this understanding in a range of historical contexts. ~ Dr Robert O'Neill, Senior Lecturer in Economics.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.
