History and Politics (with Placement Year)

Coventry University

4 Years

Program Description

This integrated degree brings together the two complementary disciplines of politics and history. We combine the teaching of comparative 20th century politics and political ideas with modern global, political and social history, with a focus on Britain, Europe and America.

Examining past issues of conflict, poverty, marginalised communities, environment and gender throughout history will enhance your understanding of today’s socio-political problems and associated decision-making.

The development of academic and professional skills is embedded into the course. We provide you with opportunities that will improve your powers of reason, judgment, critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving.
