last modified Jan 28, 2016 08:56 AM

The Faculty of History and the Department of Politics and International Studies are delighted to announce that undergraduates at Cambridge will be able to read for a degree in History and Politics from 1st October 2017.

The new degree represents an exciting opportunity for those interested in both History and Politics.  Students will be able to choose from a rich selection of courses offered by the History Faculty and the Department of Politics and International Studies, together with a course unique to the new degree entitled ‘Evidence and Argument’. This has been specifically designed for the first year of the programme and will bring together key thinking from both disciplines. 

Students will also have the chance to conduct intensive study in political science, the history of political thought, a wide variety of modern British, European, American and World history, conceptual issues in political science, and quantitative methods. In the third year, students will be able to choose from a wide range of subjects offered in Politics, International Relations and History and may also do an optional dissertation.

More information will be available in early March 2016.
