Educational Aims Of Programme

The Joint Honours Programme in History and International Studies is designed to provide students with an intellectual training in the disciplines of History and Politics which, while discrete subjects, are also complementary and mutually enriching. A key premise of the programme is that understanding the present and anticipating the future requires the ability to study and interpret the past as a means to understanding the present. This programme enables students to appreciate how historical events shape modern issues and how such themes are to be understood and explained through insights into political analysis (e.g. political theory, political institutions, international relations). It offers students the opportunity to analyse country based developments across the globe and pays specific attention to the histories and politics of Africa, Europe and the America. It allows students to appreciate how the insights of political theory and the tools of historical inquiry combine to illuminate political developments, including those in the contemporary world. The International Studies part of the programme is very much designed to allow students to engage with political developments, issues (war on terror, sustainability, the banking crisis and European integration) and political movements. The joint programme is also designed to equip students with a range of skills which together foster the ability to practise self-motivated learning and increase the capacity to undertake independent learning in a progressive way. Whilst certain skills are subject specific to each discipline certain of them are mutually reinforcing, including the ability to evaluate critically primary and secondary sources, whilst others are designed to be transferable and thereby enhance the employability of students.

Whilst certain skills are subject specific to each discipline (e.g. textual analysis; the interview skills of political historians) certain of them are mutually reinforcing (e.g. the ability to critically evaluate primary and secondary sources; the identification and prioritization of appropriate evidence) whilst others are designed to be transferable and thereby enhance the employability of students (e.g. effective communication, IT skills, team-work).

As discrete disciplines, History and International Studies each seeks to promote its own unique subject skills, through developing students’ capacity to understand and reflect upon the nature of the different disciplines; History is concerned with the contested and limited nature of historical knowledge and the ability to understand and engage with the general theoretical and methodological approaches of historians; International Studies (as a sub-branch of Politics) is concerned with understanding issues of power and issues of government, governance and who is governed.

Internship

The internship scheme involves work placements with a range of government agencies and political parties at Stormont, as well as the Police Ombudsman, the BBC and local non-governmental agencies and consultancies. Students spend three days a week seconded to an organization, providing them with vital work experience and exposure to the world of policy-making. This counts as a double-weighted module and requires students to produce a weekly reflective learning journal based on their practical experiences, but involving the application of insights from academic literature relevant to their place of work. The internships are usually unpaid and last for a semester. They are designed to foster practical work experience and a range of vocational skills to enhance a student’s employability. Students have to apply for the internship via CV, covering letter and formal interview conducted by school academic staff. Internships although encouraged on the programme are not guaranteed. The Convenor of the Internship Scheme is currently Dr Muiris MacCarthaigh (Email m.maccarthaigh@qub.ac.uk). Each student on internship is also appointed an academic supervisor from with the School.

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Seminars and tutorials offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Through class discussions, sometimes assigned to pairs or sub-groups, students develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material and the ability to formulate their own arguments and responses.

Through supervision of dissertations and research essays students are encouraged to identify a research topic; collate relevant data and write an independent analysis of it

Student-centred learning situations encourage the ability to present and summarise knowledge to peers in a coherent, structured form, and to further enhance organisational and inter-personal skills.

Writing skills tutorials and dissertation workshops develop a student’s ability to structure and write a coherent and lucid essay and dissertation. Research skills in online bibliographical searches and the use of archives and libraries are developed through preparatory workshops for the dissertation. Students also have the opportunity to attend classes in database management.

Group projects are used to encourage students to collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Methods of Assessment

Examinations and essays require that students demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Written exams help students gain a knowledge of a topic that can be readily and directly applied to a set problem or question, and also test their ability to select relevant information and to write clearly and concisely within a set time.

Essays test their ability to collect, order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which to present and prioritise material.

Dissertations test students’ ability to conceive of an independent research project; collate relevant data and synthesise it in a coherent and lucid analysis.

Coursework is required to be submitted in a specified form and to fixed deadlines, thus teaching students to learn to prioritise assignments and objectives and to hone their organisational and time-management skills.

Feedback is provided for each type and instance of assessment and students may seek dedicated feedback sessions with course tutors. The Personal Tutor system facilitates student reflection upon academic performance and assists in developing strategies for improvement.

Writing skills tutorials and dissertation workshops develop a student’s ability to structure and write a coherent and lucid essay and dissertation. Research skills in online bibliographical searches and the use of archives and libraries are developed through preparatory workshops for the dissertation. Students also have the opportunity to attend classes in database management.

Group projects are used to encourage students to collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Methods of Assessment

Examinations and essays require that students demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Written exams help students gain a knowledge of a topic that can be readily and directly applied to a set problem or question, and also test their ability to select relevant information and to write clearly and concisely within a set time.

Essays test their ability to collect, order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which to present and prioritise material.

Dissertations test students’ ability to conceive of an independent research project; collate relevant data and synthesise it in a coherent and lucid analysis.

Coursework is required to be submitted in a specified form and to fixed deadlines, thus teaching students to learn to prioritise assignments and objectives and to hone their organisational and time-management skills.

Feedback is provided for each type and instance of assessment and students may seek dedicated feedback sessions with course tutors. The Personal Tutor system facilitates student reflection upon academic performance and assists in developing strategies for improvement.
