History and Sociology BA

By studying both history and sociology, you'll develop an understanding of past societies and patterns of social change.

History modules cover past societies from the late Roman through to the modern period, addressing political, social and cultural themes in history. You'll learn to exercise independent judgement, to be critical of accepted opinion and to present your arguments effectively.

Sociology modules cover the fundamentals of sociological analysis. Subjects include crime and deviance, religion and belief, migration, surveillance, race and racism and new genetics. You will also learn research and information retrieval techniques.
