The Oxford course gives an opportunity for students to choose and direct their own learning. It is possible to combine medieval historical options for example, with the analysis of contemporary political systems and there are a number of Tutors whose interests lie in the history of political thought. The interdisciplinarity of this course is its primary strength allowing for a tailored and intellectually rigorous educational experience.
