Course summary

**Overview**By studying History with Politics, you can learn about political history as it’s being written. Your lecturers will be the authors of some of the books you’re using - and you’ll even get the chance to contribute to their research. And, as well as benefiting from the latest thinking, you can learn through a work placement - perhaps in archives, museums, local community groups, schools, a National Trust property, or by working for a political party or campaign.You'll learn to understand how historical study has contemporary relevance, particularly in politics. Indeed, politics enhances your knowledge of history by contextualising these studies within the contemporary systems and philosophies of Westminster, Europe and the world. **Key features**- Guest lectures, from experts such as the historical consultant for the BBC’s Peaky Blinders, Producer of Radio 4’s Home Front- Opportunities to attend Women’s History Network Conferences- Bespoke writing retreats to help you write your dissertation, with support from staff and other students- Trips to various local, regional and national sites of historical and political interest, including the Infirmary Museum, Imperial War Museum, Slavery Museum, and Parliament- Specialist careers advice and work-based learning opportunities in local museums, archives, and with political parties in local constituencies and Parliament that will increase your employability- Specialist resources, including the County Archives, based in our library, the Hive, and the Cathedral libraries in Worcester and Hereford, not to mention a range of available online historical and political resources through the University’s Library Services
