The aim of the History minor is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the human past and to reflect critically on the complex, and often contradictory, information available to us now about that past.
Economics with History BSc
The Economics with History BSc will help you to understand the events of history fully. You’ll learn about the structures which affect real-life decisions and events around the world, as well as gaining a rigorous knowledge of the historical contexts leading to those events. You’ll develop the quantitative skills needed to interpret contemporary economics as practised, alongside the ability to analyse the theory behind both economic and historical study of the world.
