Course summary

The BA in History and Economics (Joint Honours) enables students to combine the study of the past with the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of economic analysis. History modules cover the period from the fall of the Roman Empire to the present day. There is a balance between modules covering specific historical periods and thematic modules that examine broad social and cultural topics, such as warfare, gender, religion, art, medicine and science. The History side of the degree aims to develop students’ knowledge and critical understanding of the political, social, economic, and cultural structures of past societies and to cultivate intellectual skills such as the ability to assess evidence critically, to evaluate different interpretations of the evidence, to construct arguments on the basis of evidence, and to express opinions cogently in speech and in writing.The Economics element provides students with an understanding of economic theory, in particular the organisational and managerial characteristics of the modern business enterprise. The programme aims to inform you of the main features of the UK industrial economy and the key developments in business. You will examine government and international business policy to identify their ramifications for the development of markets and firms. You will also be introduced to subject areas outside the economics discipline with the opportunity to follow modules in business finance, marketing and other aspects of management.Distinctive featuresThe degree provides the training necessary for students who wish to study Economics or History at postgraduate level, and a valuable range of intellectual and transferable skills for students who wish to enter other professions.
