On our History and Education Studies (Joint Honours) BA (Hons) course you will study a wide range of topics that, after the first year, can be tailored to suit your own individual interests. You will be immersed in examining the range of disciplines associated with their chosen subjects including the psychology, sociology, philosophy and history of education.
