History and Politics at Cambridge is an exciting joint Honours degree which offers subjects from the History and Human, Social and Political Sciences (HSPS) courses, together with bespoke papers which allow students to explore the space between the two disciplines. Students develop skills in analysing the operation of power and politics across histories, institutions, and societies around the world, as well as understanding the nature of evidence, methodology, and approaches in both History and Politics. Students are able to choose from a wide range of topics in British, European, American, African and Asian history and politics. More information about the course can be found on the University website.
