These two dynamic subjects will help you to develop your analytic and questioning skills, while also giving you an understanding of some of the philosophical ideology that has shaped world events and societies.
If you want to study the past and develop an understanding of the philosophical problems faced by today’s decision-makers then this is the perfect course for you.
History is a living, breathing subject that is constantly renewing, evolving and revealing new information. It teaches us about the past, anchors us to the present, and informs our future. Philosophy examines world views to understand the past in relation to the present.
You’ll be able to engage with sources and debates from a great range of different cultures and time periods and you’ll be encouraged to think more critically and clearly about the world around you. This will help you to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking, and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to the ultimate questions.

Careers and employability
This is a major part of the curriculum. Key transferable skills are emphasised and there are opportunities to develop links with organisations and potential employers. Joint honours courses develop a wide range of skills. These include written and oral communication skills, critical analysis and a variety of IT skills. But you’ll also become more self-motivated, be able to work independently and in teams, and develop excellent time management skills.
Philosophy and History graduates have gone on to forge successful careers both within large, well known organisations and the small to medium sized companies that constitute much of the UK economy. Recent graduate roles have included law, publishing, marketing, PR, retail and finance.
Some graduates choose to progress to further study, either to continue their research within Philosophy or History, or to gain more direct vocational qualifications such as museum and heritage management, teaching, or tourism.
