Our Joint Honours degrees give you the opportunity to divide your study between two complementary areas of interest. You will study the core modules from each subject and a reduced number of options, in a choice of pathways
BA Politics and Geography
This programme blends analysis of politics at different territorial scales with the study of the way environments are organised and managed through cultural, economic and political processes. It allows you to explore various political systems across the globe and also develops practical geographical techniques through fieldwork. You will be introduced to the historical and geographical aspects of human society and the physical environment and their complex inter-relationships.
BA History and Politics
This programme brings together History modules that include an engagement with the politics of past societies, with political analysis that includes the study of the historical development of political thought. The programme enables you to explore the history of various societies across the globe and the connections and comparisons between them but is also firmly based in practical techniques. You will be introduced to a wide range of political and historical problems and the main analytical and critical approaches of the two disciplines.
Flexible Combined Honours degrees
This innovative Combined Honours scheme enables you to combine modules from a number of different fields of study not otherwise available through an existing Joint Honours programme. You can combine up to three subjects from a range of subjects. Throughout your degree you will be given regular support to help you choose the most appropriate pathway for you. Further information and the full list of available subjects can be found on the Flexible Combined Honours scheme webpages.
