History and Sociology, BA Hons

History and Sociology, BA Hons

This programme will allow you to combine the study of history and sociology. You will study at a World Heritage Site, itself a living legacy of British scientific,maritime and imperial history, as well as a thriving multicultural centre of contemporary Britain.

The history pathway explores a wide range of historical topics, from global events to community history, and from witchcraft to the World Wars. We take full advantage of our historically and culturally rich location and proximity to central London, incorporating visits to museums and archives into our courses and offer opportunities for you to develop your research skills and to develop practical and professional skills through a work placement.

The sociology element of this programme will allow you to specialise in the study of applied sociology. Sociology is an innovative and vibrant subject offering students the opportunity to study courses covering a range of issues from consumer culture to social justice, from gender and identity to global relations. A broad foundation in sociological thinking and critique is offered while also supporting you to pursue your own ideas and interests through focused research.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide students with a substantial grounding in modern British, European and world history
  • To enhance understanding of important and controversial issues in society, including debates about gender, ethnicity, crime and deviance, social justice, global politics and cultural production and consumption
  • To nurture the development of open, creative and critical thinkers who are able to apply these qualities of mind in a variety of intellectual contexts
  • To provide a structure and an environment in which skills relevant to citizenship, employability, and lifelong learning may be developed.
