2. Description of the Programme

This joint honours programme is studied over three years and is university-based throughout that time. It is comprised of three stages, of 120 credits per stage, each of which normally occupies an academic year so that it requires three years to accumulate the 360 credits required for a final award. Part-time study over a longer period is possible by negotiation with the Colleges.

This programme is studied over four years. The first two years and the final year are university-based, and the third year is spent gaining employment experience at a suitable location in the UK.

This Employment Experience variant of the programme is a great way to incorporate graduate-level work placement or placements undertaken in the United Kingdom directly into your programme of study, to reflect critically upon these experiences, and for them to count towards the assessment of your degree. There is no better way to gain valuable employment experience that can be rewarded and recognised clearly by future employers. With preparation, support and approval from the College of Humanities, you can also demonstrate adaptability and resourcefulness by organising suitable placements in areas of employment related to your interests and potential future career.

You are required to find your own placement with suitable employers and organisations with preparation, support and approval from the College of Humanities. If you are taking this variant you are strongly encouraged to take HUM2000 or HUM2001 (Humanities in the Workplace) at stage 2 and must participate in the pre-departure briefing sessions for Humanities Employment Experience.

Advice and guidance on your programme can be sought from your personal tutor and programme director. All staff offer regular office hours that you can drop into without a prior appointment for this purpose.

3. Educational Aims of the Programme

This programme aims to

  • To offer an excellent Honours-level education in International Relations and History which at least meets the national Subject Benchmarks in the two disciplines.
  • To ensure that graduates from the programme are useful, productive and questioning members of society
  • To enable students to appreciate the historical evolution and contemporary character of world politics, from both the system and actor perspectives.
  • To enable students to understand and use the main concepts, approaches and theories in the study of International Relations, and to analyze, interpret and evaluate world political events and issues.
  • To produce graduates who are grounded in the main themes of History through a combination of both broad and detailed focuses on particular aspects of the past, study of a range of time periods, and study of different geographical areas; who understand the methods which historians use to study the past; and who can analyse the development of past societies.
  • To develop students' competence in the specific skills required in History and in International Relations, and in core academic and personal and key skills.
  • To offer a wide range of choice within the programme of study, insofar as this choice is consistent with the coherence and intellectual rigour of the degree.

1. HISTORY: Discuss the philosophical problems confronting historians.
2. Describe the recurring themes in History, such as class, gender, ethnicity, religion and war, and of the main themes in particular topics selected for modules; trace the key developments within a topic and relate them to an overall conception of the subject matter; evaluate complex themes in History; make close specialist evaluation of key developments within particular periods/topics.
3. Show awareness of the variety of approaches taken to historical research; ability to evaluate the professionalism and scholarly value of historical works; ability to evaluate the reasons for changes in historiographical approaches
4. Define a suitable research topic in the subject area and pursue it to completion.
5. Use different types of historical source; evaluate different and complex types of historical source; use primary sources in a professional manner.
6. Present work in the format expected of historians, including footnoting and bibliographical references.
7. Show knowledge of how quantitative data can be used in historical research.
8. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS: Demonstrate understanding of the nature and significance of politics as a global activity.
9. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the historical evolution and contemporary character of world politics.
10. Apply concepts and theories used in the study of International Relations to the analysis of political ideas, practices and issues in the global arena.
11. Evaluate different interpretations of world political issues and events.

1, 2 and 3 are developed at stage one in the Making History module, Understanding the Medieval and early Modern World and Understanding the Modern World though lectures, seminars, and written work.

1 is further developed especially in the Uses of the Past module at stage two.

2 and 3 form the backbone of all modules taken at all stages, but the level of complexity and nuance develops according to stage with the Comparative Histories modules particularly focused on these skills.

Students are encouraged to use the stage one Making History and stage two Doing History as a way of addressing 4, and concentrate on doing so in the Dissertation at stage 3. More generally, the choice of essays that they are given in all modules develops this skill in them from the outset of their programme.

5 is a  requirement of all modules, but there is particular  primary source emphasis - developing in complexity  as the student progresses through the stages of the  programme - at level 1 in Sources and Skills,  Understanding the Medieval and early Modern World  and Understanding the Modern World, at level 2 

Doing History, and at level 3 in the Special Subject and Dissertation.

Students are given clear guidelines about 6 in the Undergraduate Handbook, and are instructed in such matters in Making History, and are expected to demonstrate it in all modules.

7 is developed through the Sources and Skills and may be developed in other elective modules. Many modules have a requirement of some work with quantitative data.

8 is developed through all modules at all levels, at increasing degrees of complexity as the programme progresses from level to level.

9 is developed through POL1017 and POL1018, and may be further developed in elective modules thereafter.

10 is developed through POL2020 and POL2057.

11 is developed through the elective modules taken at Stages 2 and 3. 

The assessment of all these skills is through a combination of term-time essays, oral presentations, wikis, project and dissertation work, and examinations. The criteria of assessment pay full recognition to the importance of the various skills outlined.

Intended Learning Outcomes
B: Academic Discipline Core Skills and Knowledge

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs)
On successfully completing this programme you will be able to:
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) will be...
...accommodated and facilitated by the following learning and teaching activities (in/out of class):...and evidenced by the following assessment methods:

12. Draw thematic comparisons between material from different sources.
13. Show awareness of contrasting approaches to research and judge between competing views
14. Show a clear understanding of the nature of both qualitative and quantitative evidence.
15. Show a clear awareness of the basic philosophical questions arising from academic research.
16. Think and write broadly about large themes
17. Comprehend complex terminology and discourses, and deploy such terminology in a comprehensible manner
18. Identify problems of reliability and bias in, and more generally evaluate, evidence.
19. Collate data from a range of sources.
20. Reference sources accurately in written work
21. Present work and answer questions orally
22. Ask pertinent and intellectually demanding questions of other students
23. Focus on and comprehend complex texts

These skills are all developed throughout the degree programme, but the emphasis becomes more complex as students move from stage to stage. They are developed through lectures and seminars, written work, and oral work (both presentation and class discussion).

All these skills are assessed through a combination of term-time essays, wikis, dissertations, assessed
presentations, and examinations.

Intended Learning Outcomes
C: Personal/Transferable/Employment Skills and Knowledge

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) will be...
...accommodated and facilitated by the following learning and teaching activities (in/out of class):...and evidenced by the following assessment methods:

24. Undertake independent study and work to deadlines.
25. Digest, select and organise material for written work and oral presentations, and write to varying word lengths.
26. Plan the execution of work over a very long time scale.
27. Participate in oral discussions; present and evaluate complex arguments and ideas orally; digest, select and organise material for oral presentations.
28. Work with others as part of a team on challenging material. Interact effectively with peers and staff.
29. Undertake group work, including the presentation and discussion of material in groups.

24 is an essential part of the successful completion of the programme but is particularly developed in Doing History and the Dissertation.

25 is developed through essay and presentation work throughout the programme.

26 is developed through Making History at stage one (end of term deadline), Doing History at stage two (3 formal deadlines over the year) and, at stage three, through the Dissertation, whether in History or International Realtions, which has a single end of year deadline.
