Students will examine traditional Sociology topics, such as gender, race, medicine, food, sexuality, trade and health from a historical perspective. The two complementary subjects both involve understanding people – their interests, motivations and culture – and why societies and social groups act as they do. This course will be taught by staff from both departments, and will draw information from sources including film, visual images, literature and television as well as written texts. The flexible course structure allows students to choose modules from a wide range of options in both History and Sociology. Core modules in the first year introduce students to research and quantitative methods, and to the study of modern history set in a global context. Sociology core modules cover the history of sociological thought, and class and capitalism. In the second and third years, students can choose from optional modules, with current options examining areas such as British imperialism, slavery, the significance of gender, crime, religious conflict or health in history, and political sociology. In the final year students can either maintain a balance between the two subjects or specialise in either History or Sociology. They can also complete an optional dissertation on a topic of their choice related to either subject.
