In our 2018 National Student Survey the Department of History and Politics received an exceptional overall satisfaction of 96.86%, with Politics and International Relations receiving 100% satisfaction.

The History and Politics team deliver programmes on a range of vibrant topics. History ranges from the Early Modern to Modern era, including Witch hunting and Witch beliefs, to European Nationalism and Revolutionary Europe. Politics and International Relations topics include key policy changes in the United States, such as gun control and the death penalty. Teaching is research–informed. You can expect to be taught by academic staff who publish their work as books, journal articles, and through a range of social and news media. 

Students can also look forward to taking learning outside the classroom, as they visit local, national and international sites. In 2018/9, our students will explore the home of the European Union (EU), during a week-long trip to Brussels visiting key EU institutions, and visiting First World War sites. 

Our degrees will equip you with the skills and knowledge to work in a range of rewarding careers, such as in parliament, civil service, the NHS, journalism, and archiving. You will receive dedicated one-to-one academic and pastoral support from the department to ensure you get the most out of your degree.
