    Hello
    I have been considering getting into teaching as a future career. I'd love to teach either History or Politics and am thinking about studying History and Politics (VL12) at the University of Sunderland. Is this qualification enough to teach History? Or, do I need a degree specifically in History.

    Yes, that will be fine.

    I have a joint honours degree in French and History and now teach French and Spanish.

    A friend of mine has a degree in Archaeology and Ancient History, did a History PGCE and now teaches History and Classics.

    Yeah, I'm in my last year of my history and politics course atm, and am starting my teacher training for history in September!

    They ask that 50% of your course is relatable to the pgce you'll be doing, so as you'd be doing half history, that's perfect! You can still teach politics at a level if the school has a sixth form that teaches it, you're not just restricted to history.

    Hope that helps!
