Coventry Words

HIPSOC is a young but ambitious society primarily catering for those studying History, International Relations, Politics and Sociology although those with an interest in any of these subjects are also more than welcome. 


The society has strong departmental links but is both social and academic, providing a great way for students to meet others on their course while also providing another academic base of support. We also organise social and academic trips and in the past have been to Alton Towers, The Imperial War Museum and also Berlin to name a few.
