Undergraduate Courses

History and Politics

History and Politics is an ideal course for those whose interest in history lies in the contemporary world, and in the development and workings of government.

The degree not only enables students to set contemporary political problems in their historical perspective, but also equips them to approach the study of the past with the conceptual rigour derived from political science. Students are required to study quantitative methods in preparation for year 2 Social Science papers.
