The joint honours degree courses allow you to gain a first-class exposure to two subjects and to acquire a broader range of skills than a normal single honours degree, whilst at the same time enjoying the benefits of specialisation.
The course is split equally between the two subject areas. Its structure provides you with the ability to choose from an extensive range of optional modules tailoring the course to suit your interests and career aspirations.
The historical component of the course spans the period from 1600 to the present, focusing mostly on the modern era. Its subject matter includes Britain and mainland Europe, but extends further afield to North America, the British Empire, Soviet Russia, South Asia and China. It begins with broad survey courses, proceeds with the history of individual countries or themes and culminates in specialist case studies. The international relations component enables you to understand how key global factors have responded to international political, economic and social challenges since the Second World War.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
