Course summary

**Overview**Studied together, History and Sociology provide engrossing opportunities to investigate the origins, development and organisation of people’s social, cultural and political lives. They root understanding of the present in historical, contextual understanding of how societies have developed and been understood over time.As you progress, you may choose to select modules that maintain a deliberately wide-ranging approach. Alternatively however, you can hone in on particular topics, creating opportunities to develop extended projects that bring your interests in both courses closer together.Both subject areas offer their undergraduates lively subject cultures and numerous extra-curricular events, from visits to Worcester Crown Court, to seminars on Worcester and the English Civil War, to opportunities to get involved in staging academic conferences. They also aim to support your understanding of the range of opportunities that could be available to you on graduation. To this end, you can undertake work placements as part of your formal study, explore opportunities for postgraduate study and investigate, with those who are already following them, career paths in teaching, the cultural industries, the media and PR, youth and social work, human relations and the many other sectors in which history and sociology graduates find work.Studying History and Sociology in combination will be well worth considering if you enjoy the processes of research and communicating your research, and if you are interested in the roles that these disciplines play in social and political understanding and change.**Key Features**- A wide range of modules in British, European and World History from the 16th to 20th centuries- History assessment is mostly by coursework and designed to enable you to acquire skills in research, analysis and communication - Course engagement with urgent and key issues facing contemporary societies - Opportunities to acquire research, communication and other valued skills - Opportunities to gain work experience, study abroad for a semester, be involved in volunteering activities and to act as a student representative and paid ambassador**Learn more about the course at our Open Days**Visiting us is the best way to get a feel for student life at the University of Worcester.
