Course description

Modern History with Economics offers a flexible programme structure built around the study of modern history, economic history, economics and political economy. A key feature of the programme is the opportunity students have to develop and apply transferable skills drawn from studying related academic disciplines in history and the social sciences. Broad courses in history and economics constitute the core of the degree in the first two years, leading to more specialist options (in both history and economics/political economy) in Year 3, including 12,000-word independent research project.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £15,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
