Course description

This course offers the opportunity to study history or politics with two modern languages, or one modern language with History and Politics. French, German, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish are all offered at beginners’ and post-A level, and we also offer beginners-only options in Serbian/Croatian and Slovene. If you opt to study two languages, at least one must be post-A level. This degree will appeal to linguists who wish to gain a more comprehensive grounding in history and/or politics and also students of history and politics who wish to introduce a modern European language into their studies. You will spend your third year abroad, studying or working in your chosen European country or countries.


In your first year, you follow a range of foundation modules in whichever combination of three subjects you have chosen. In year two you choose from a broader range of options within your three disciplines, focusing on more specialised subjects. You’ll spend your third year abroad in a country or countries where your chosen language or languages are spoken and then upon entering your final year you will choose from a range of optional modules in each discipline to extend your knowledge base.
