About this course

Full-time | 2019

The History major covers a broad sweep of history from the Roman Empire through to the present-day America. NCH’s history degrees cover an array of time periods and movements. Our history students face challenge and rigour, geared toward a practical application of the subject.

Your study of the History with Politics & International Relations BA will provide a full understanding of how people have lived, and how states have attempted to shape and influence those lives throughout history. You will study periods from the Roman Empire through to modern day America, drawing on complex and often contradictory sources. You will also take courses examining the practice and applications of the historical discipline itself. In the Politics & IR minor, you’ll compare the political institutions of different countries, analysing their legitimacy to dictate over their subjects and how they interact with other organisations.

Assessment methods

The central aim of the History major is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the human past and the ways in which humans have organised their lives materially and conceptually as individuals and societies, and to reflect critically on the complex and contradictory information available to us now about the past. The Politics and International Relations minor trains students to analyse texts, evidence and other source material, with guidance, using given approaches, techniques and principles, in order to understand the centrality of human activity and discourse to political science, the contribution of major schools of thought, and mainstream thinkers embedded within Western, but also Eastern, traditions of modern political thought.
