Our University tool allows students to find out about course combinations at different universities. It is a great way open their mind to widen the scope of their research when it comes to the UCAS process.
And one of our favourite things at Unifrog is to spot the most surprising combinations of subjects during our demonstrations with teachers. Your students are considering history at university? Here is a selection of combinations they probably did not think of!
Swahili and History (TVN1)
SOAS, University of London
This 4-year degree combines the study of the language of Swahili with another language or discipline. The range of expertise in SOAS with regard to languages and literatures of other regions is unique in UK institutions. Along with proven excellence in other disciplines, such as religious studies, anthropology, art and archaeology, and history, this offers students an unparalleled range of options in choosing their second subject of study.
Smart Systems and History (GV710)
There is nothing dead about history. It is not just about understanding the past, but about looking beneath the surface of our world and coming to understand the forces which shape it, from economic and social evolution to the interaction of individuals and cultures. Keele's historians have a world-class expertise in a wide range of fields, from Anglo-Saxon Britain to 20th-Century Africa, from religion to women's politics. They share a genuine passion for their subject and the continual mission of exploration and explanation it involves. Smart Systems requires a solid grounding in Computer Science, and for that reason the course shares some modules with Computer Science.
Forensic Science and History (FV41)
Forensic Science is very much a multidisciplinary science subject. It is the application of scientific methods and techniques in the context of crime and the legal system. It is a constantly fascinating subject because every measurement, every experiment is unique and the scientific results can have a significant impact on the life of a single human being. The story behind every scientific problem has a human interest angle but the forensic scientist must be able to investigate and analyse the situation, impartially and objectively, through careful and exacting scientific measurement.
Accounting and History (NV41)
Accounting is a strongly vocational subject and draws on principles from a range of the social sciences, including Finance, Economics, Law, Management, Mathematics and Computing. Accounting provides essential knowledge for the understanding of business behaviour, strategy and corporate performance and this makes it essential for the study of business, management and related areas. The course offers the opportunity to gain a firm grounding in accountancy while allowing students to tailor their studies to their individual requirements through a series of options in the three years of study. It provides students with a contemporary, internationally oriented and globally informed syllabus.
Marketing and History (N5V1)
University of Northampton
This course is for those that feel they either want to work in marketing, to combine it with another area of interest or who want to have an understanding of the marketing philosophy that exists in many successful organizations. It is geared towards developing your competence and skill as a prospective marketer as well as your knowledge of marketing models, theories and concepts.
