History and Politics Tripos - New for 2022.
Cambridge is uniquely placed to teach History and Politics together. Staff in the Faculty of History and the Department of Politics and International Studies have a wide range of shared interests in political history, international relations, and the history of political ideas, and draw on a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Our joint degree balances a strong grounding in the two component subjects with the chance to explore the ways in which historical and political understanding together illuminate the modern world.
One of the strengths of the History and Politics degree at Cambridge is the quality of the teaching: you will have the opportunity to learn from some of the most eminent academics in the field. The degree is taught through a mixture of departmental lectures, seminars and classes, and college ‘supervisions’, in which students discuss their essays with a senior academic individually or in very small groups. Supervisions provide a wonderful opportunity for students to receive individual feedback on their work and to discuss the problems and ideas thrown up by the lectures and further reading.
