Course summary

During a period of profound and unprecedented political upheaval, a degree in politics and history will equip you with the skills necessary to lead and succeed in a changing world. Combining your politics degree with the study of history is a smart choice. Everyday politics at local, national and international level provides the material out of which history comes to be understood.As well as exploring British and international political structures, our course offers a distinct focus on ‘political action’ across party politics, campaigns and community politics, all within the context of history.Throughout the course, we maintain a critical focus on how political ideas and policies have translated into ‘real, felt’ political action and outcomes ‘on the ground’. This includes relating theory to issues of historical and contemporary social justice and social policy. Politics and history graduates have an important range of analytical and organisational skills applicable to many graduate opportunities. Jobs directly related to this degree include Government and Civil Service roles, covering public affairs, consultancy and research. Jobs in the field of marketing, media, public relations, and local government are also popular.The political landscape is changing. New relationships are being forged between the left and right, and between localism, nationalism and globalism, but there are always lessons to learn from the past. There has never been a more exciting time to study this degree.
