By studying both history and sociology you'll develop an understanding of past societies and patterns of social change.
Both history and sociology are fascinating subjects. By studying both at University Centre West Anglia (UcWA), you'll develop an understanding of past societies and patterns of social change.
A sociology degree helps to frame and understand contemporary debates around race, gender and social divisions. Including the history element of the degree allows for a much deeper analysis – examining issues from an historical, sociological and biographical standpoint.
During your first year at UcWA, your focus will be on history and developing an overview of the formation of the United Kingdom, alongside a study of local history and an introduction to historical studies.
In Year 2, you progress to more focused studies of British, US and European history before specialising further in your third year, when you will study a history, sociology or combined subject in-depth for your dissertation.
Sociology modules cover the fundamentals of sociological analysis. Subjects include the sociological imagination, body politics, sexuality and social control, gender studies, deviant and criminal behaviour and social research methods.
