What I would highlight: There as a good variety of subjects to learn.
What could be improved: This college had just amalgamated with to others. It was the first time they had done this HNC. It as badly organised which put unnecessary pressure on the students. The teachers were unprepared and stressed. Things and classes were constantly being swapped about and changed.

Course summary A new degree: understanding our world means understanding history and politics.

Course description
This is a full time or part time course: it is available online through a virtual learning environment. You may attend Dornoch, Thurso, Alness and Wick for ICT facilities required. It is also possible to start the course in January on a part time basis.

Course content: Understanding our world means understanding history and politics. Now both subjects can be studied jointly.

Our BA (Honours) History and Politics offers students the chance to connect their study of politics and history with the experiences of their own areas and of Scotland more widely. But there is nothing in any way parochial about this joint honours degree course which, throughout, adopts an international, indeed global, approach to its exploration of the forces which shape all our lives.

The following is an illustration of the kind of modules available:
Year one: American politics; conflict and the balance of power in Europe, 1789-1945; the Atlantic world.

Year two: British Politics since 1906; comparative politics, Europe c.1400-1789, a history of Canada.

Year three: global diasporas; Central Europe to 1918; devolution and public policy in the UK; wars of the promised land.

Year four: terrorism and counter terrorism, transforming regimes in Eastern Europe; global politics, gender and society in North America, 1776-1970

Study options: Full time or part time. Online learning through a virtual learning environment.
