Course summary

Our BA Politics, Philosophy and History (PPH) draws together the three disciplines in a distinctive combination and uses them to interrogate one another. This innovative degree is unified by the following cross-disciplinary core modules taught by members of all three contributing departments:- Rise of the Modern State- Conceptions of the Human from the Enlightenment to Today- Problems of Explanation and InterpretationThese three modules distinguish PPH from other tripartite degrees by providing a unique intellectual spine from which you can then branch out to take individual options from each of the three departments. This structure produces a distinctive kind of student, one keen on questions and willing to think across and sometimes against conventional disciplinary boundaries. The course prepares you to undertake a higher degree or to move into a range of careers, including in education, the arts, politics, or journalism. **Highlights**- Birkbeck is a distinguished centre of research and teaching excellence in politics.
