Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.A key component of engaging with the world around us is understanding how humans have tried to organise their lives, societies and states. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future.You will learn the skills of a historian as you deepen your understanding of past eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You will also learn the skills of political analysis as you examine and explain the social, political and economic structures that have shaped the global arena and continue to impact on our daily lives. You will develop an understanding of the different approaches to both disciplines and the range of theories and methods used. History and International Relations encompasses a broad range of topics, from societies in the very distant past to contemporary migration, conflict, gender, security, and the EU, in order to understand how social and political organisation today comes from that of yesterday.The History and International Relations degree encourages you to develop as a pragmatic, analytical, and creative thinker – skills which are useful and highly valued in a large number of careers. Because of this, the careers record of Keele History and International Relations graduates is excellent. Some of the common destinations of graduates include politics (local and national), political research, think-tanks, journalism, education, management, the civil or diplomatic service, the United Nations, local government and the voluntary sector, as well as in the preservation, archival and museum sectors. Many of our graduates go on to postgraduate study with many choosing to stay at Keele.
