Politics and Modern History, BA Hons FullTime

History and Politics at Manchester is a great course and the two subjects compliment each other very well. Teaching is good and engaging, and you are not restricted to just choosing history/politics modules so a wide range to choose from. However some of the history modules in particular could be more varied, I have found that I have studied some similar topics whilst I’ve been here. I’d like to see some different areas/regions/time periods added to the syllabus. read more

Course content is interesting. Lectures are usually engaging and the seminars go by quickly. Tutors are efficient at emailing information most of the time. Not the most difficult course in terms of reading either which is good. read more

A busy but enjoyable course that's good for those who don't want to stick to just one subject. The work load is a bit heavier due to a mix of disciplines but still enjoyable nonetheless. read more
