Introduction

History and Sociology each have their own theoretical underpinning and academic conventions and the study of both disciplines provides a valuable opportunity to develop more versatile skills and perspectives as well as an appreciation of interdisciplinary connections. Applying ideas from one discipline should also enhance the student s understanding and enjoyment of the other. Combining the study of two subjects is both challenging and rewarding, increasingly appealing to self-motivated, independent-minded students who are intellectually and vocationally ambitious. In History you can study the social, cultural and economic development of modern society you can then want to explore victorian literature.

The course team have a commitment to high quality teaching and learning. They use a range of different assessment strategies to assess and facilitate student learning and include: unseen examinations; seen, open-book or take-away examinations; essays and reports; critical reviews, book reviews, workshop reports, analytical exercises; individual or group presentations; a dissertation, computer-based assessments and informed discussion and debate via module seminars and blogs.  

 

Graduates of combined honours degrees have the advantage of a broader academic viewpoint, having developed valuable transferable skills as well as sound knowledge of History and Sociology, providing excellent preparation for a wide range of careers. Graduates are now far more likely to change jobs during their working life, so having two areas of expertise and skills can pay dividends. Employers are increasingly prioritising the need for people who have a range of subject knowledge and skills and are not necessarily looking for a particular discipline. As History is a recognised National Curriculum subject, a popular career route is in teaching after Post-graduate training.
