When it comes to learning how the past affects our futures, and how political structures and processes shape the society in which we live, where better to do so than in the heart of England's history'making capital, home to Parliament? As a History student at Westminster you will be able to take advantage of our central London location, with its unrivaled range of library and archive resources, as well as its social diversity. As a Politics student you are encouraged to take part in events and activities in the capital and beyond, participate in international conferences and present papers at research events. You will be able to learn inside and outside the classroom on stimulating modules in politics, diplomacy, military and social history, and our extensive range of course options means that you can tailor your course to your particular areas of interest. All of our undergraduates also have the opportunity to undertake a work experience or internship module.
Year 1: Students take a core history module (either British socio'economic and political history, or British foreign policy since 1815), and a core politics module on political concepts, revolutions and ideologies. Years 2 and 3: Students take a history core in either 20th century British political history or 20th century Europe, and a politics core in the foundations of western political philosophy; there is a co research methods module to help students choose their dissertation topic which is in either history or politics; at credit level 6 students take either power, freedom and justice, or citizenship and democracy.
