Ancient & Modern History: With three history tutors, an ancient history tutor, and a strong Classics school, Merton is a good place to study the Ancient and Modern History degree and develop the comparative insights the course provides.
History & English: Since the History & English degree began Merton has been one of the most consistent colleges in admitting students for it. With three History tutors and three English tutors there is ample opportunity to study different periods both through their literature and through their history. Merton’s History and English graduates have gone on to careers in Art History and International Relations as well as in English and History.
History & Modern Languages: With tutors in French and Spanish and college lecturers in other languages, we admit students to study History and French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. They find ample opportunity to pursue interests in the culture they are studying in the wide range of courses available from the History syllabus.
History & Politics: With three history tutors and two politics tutors, Merton takes comparatively large numbers of students for History and Politics. Students find different ways to combine courses from the two sides of the degree, to focus, for example, on political ideas, international relations, or the political history of different areas of the world.
