History and Politics

undergraduates

Studying History and Politics in combination allows students to situate political problems of the present in their historical context and, conversely, to bring political science to bear on the problems of the past. There is a broad choice of options available and students are not restricted in their choices in one field by the choices they have made in the other.

At St Edmund Hall, we are fortunate to have two Tutorial Fellows who deliver teaching in History – David Priestland and Nicholas Davidson – as well as our Politics Fellow Karma Nabulsi, who specialises in the Middle East.
