History and Sociology (VL13)

The History and Sociology degree programme allows students to explore, amongst other things, the approaches and methods used by historians and sociologists. It reflects a convergence of interests among the teaching staff at Warwick between historically-minded sociologists and sociologically-minded historians. The combination of core modules in the first year introduces the conceptual, methodological and practical issues which arise from combining the two approaches. Second-year students choose from a wide range of optional modules offered by the two departments. Third year students can spend most of their time on either History or Sociology, or alternatively they can continue to divide their study equally between the two disciplines.
