Overview

Studying history and philosophy together gives you a wide range of modules to choose from.

We teach social, cultural, and political history from the early modern period through to the contemporary period, focusing in particular on the British Isles, Europe, the Americas, Africa, and India.

You'll use primary sources from the start, analysing various kinds of historical evidence, including written and oral materials, maps, visual images, feature films, art, and music. You'll consider how the use of sources and media representation inform our reconstructions of the past.
