From trade and industry to living standards and medicine, economic issues have often been at the heart of historical change. This varied and dynamic degree gives you a deep understanding of economic issues in the modern world, as well as an insight into how societies change over time.
Core modules will introduce you to key concepts in both subjects, such as historiography, economic theory and statistics. Then you'll build on this when you choose from an impressive range of optional modules spanning periods, cultures and sectors.
You could study anything from transport economics and international trade to ethics and the global banking sector, alongside the Industrial Revolution, the Tudors and decolonisation. It's a fantastic opportunity to discover new perspectives on history and the present, and to gain the broad base of skills that employers seek.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
Over all my experience of uni has been brilliant so far. It's a lovely campus with something for everyone, it has literally everything on it so there's no need to ever even leave campus. But the city center is super close (10-15 minute walk) and there are loads of parks too
