What will I learn?

This History and Sociology BA (Hons) course enables you to study both History and Sociology equally at the same level. Don't worry, studying joint honours doesn't mean more work. You'll study the same number of credits as a single honours student, but just take fewer modules in each of the subjects. There are lots of reasons why students choose a joint honours qualification. Just some include: that you have two subject areas of interest, that you want to explore something new alongside a core subject area or that you want to keep your career options open to a range of professions.Our Modern History programme is designed to introduce you to the essential skills of the historian, including an understanding of current debates and perspectives, alongside an ability to contextualise history from a local and global viewpoint. This is complemented by the necessary acquisition of advanced research and analytical skills, set against substantive material drawn from modern history from the eighteenth century to the present day. The degree is designed to help you form a deeper understanding of the relationship of the social and cultural present with that of the past. This degree also helps you develop powers of analysis and problem solving, research skills, critical thinking, team work and interpersonal skills. The skills learnt in undertaking the Modern History degree are valuable for the world of work on graduation.Covering a broad range of critical and contemporary issues, our exciting and innovative Sociology programme introduces you to the many diverse and contentious sociological perspectives that try to explain the world around you. Our modules encourage you to critically examine contemporary social change, to question the reality and representations of the social and cultural forces which mould us, and to evaluate the nature of society itself. The study of social relations, processes and structures is undertaken historically, in comparative focus and with relevance to many of the key issues facing contemporary societies. Within this, considerable emphasis is also given to the importance of developing those theoretical and conceptual tools appropriate to the understanding of these social processes and structures, and to the different theoretical and methodological approaches which frame their investigation.BA (Hons) History and Sociology is approved by Lancaster University.
