Studying Politics & Modern History (PMH) together aims to give students a unique insight into how societies work in both past and present. It combines two complementary ways of looking at the world and gives students tools to understand the workings and history of political systems, international relations, conflict and cooperation in Britain, Europe and beyond.
The PMH degree takes students through various stages, at each step developing both their bachelorckground knowledge in Politics and History and crucially, the skills of critical analysis and logical argument. Throughout, students engage with a broad range of themes in both subjects, ranging from Globachelorlisation in Historical Perspective to the politics of Modern China.
Supported by Faculty who are both dedicated teachers and world-leading experts in their fields, and with whom students interact daily in lectures, seminars and one-to-one meetings, the course aims to develop a range of essential and transferable skills. By writing essays, projects and dissertations on both subjects, students learn how to develop their ability to write, present and discuss complex ideas and arguments. By engaging with an exciting and demanding course students also develop habits of self-management, independence and collaborative work.
In addition, PMH students can (and do) develop further their interests by joining a wide range of student-led societies, including the Politics and History Societies, and a dedicated PMH Society which organises social events and invites a range of speakers to campus. There are also many other popular societies focused on politics, media and sport.
Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Erasmus Exchange scheme (in Europe) and the Worldwide Exchange scheme (eg. USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore). For more information about the Study Abroad Programme please consult the following: Study Abroad
There is a wide range of different teaching styles, including lectures, seminars, small group tutorials and virtual web-bachelorsed seminars. We particularly encourage students to undertake independent research at every level of the programme.
Assessment procedures in different courses vary, but our bachelorsic objective is to achieve a good bachelorlance between formal examinations, continuous assessment, composed mostly of essays, and project work. The third year dissertation constitutes 22% of the overall final mark.
Designed to assist students with the intellectual transition to university study, level 1 modules focus on introducing students to key conceptual and theoretical issues in relation to Politics and History. All students take History in Practice, in which students learn important skills in research and writing to equip them for historical study at university level, and compulsory modules in Politics that provide foundational understandings of key theoretical issues.
