You’ll learn about the structures which affect real-life decisions and events around the world, as well as gaining a rigorous knowledge of the historical contexts leading to those events. You’ll develop the quantitative skills needed to interpret contemporary economics as practised, alongside the ability to analyse the theory behind both economic and historical study of the world.


The degree is studied over three years and there are three terms each year: Michaelmas (autumn), Hilary (spring) and Trinity (summer).  Michaelmas and Hilary are 12 weeks long. Trinity is eight weeks long.

The Michaelmas and Hilary terms both consist of eight to ten weeks of intensive study for the degree programme, with one Reading Week and the remaining week for Collections (individual meetings with the student and their tutors to review their performance over the term).

The Trinity term consists of three to four weeks of teaching and revision, three of exams, and then a fortnight of other activities and preparation for courses to be studied in the year ahead.

The courses in History, the minor subject, will be taught over the whole of the academic year. The courses in Economics, the major subject, may be taught in more concentrated periods through the year.
