Course summary

Join us on an intellectual journey through the past. You develop expertise in the fields of history and sociology, and are encouraged to explore the ways in which the two disciplines influence and inform one another. We consider every aspect of our daily lives, from how we relate to politicians, celebrities and friends past and present, to how we define ourselves, our families, and others. As a student of history, you discover both the early modern and modern periods, and explore challenging questions concerning the impact of political, social and cultural change on individuals, social groups, and regions. There is a range of relevant options to choose from in both departments and you choose the focus of your final-year dissertation.
