Course summary

The Joint Honours Programme in History and International Studies provides students with an intellectual training in disciplines that are complementary and mutually enriching. The programme enables students to appreciate how historical events shape modern issues and how such themes are to be understood and explained through insights into political analysis (eg political theory, political institutions, international relations). It offers students the opportunity to analyse country-based developments across the globe and pays specific attention to the histories and politics of Africa, Europe and the America.
