Personalise your learning

We have introduced exciting changes to our programmes to enable you to tailor your degree to your needs. We are offering even more flexibility and choice, enabling you to study a range of themes around your chosen subject area.

Our Interdisciplinary modules and Major/Minor options are preparing our graduates for their future by creating personalisation opportunities and opening up choice within our degree programmes.

Interdisciplinary modules

We have introduced new interdisciplinary modules to a number of our degree programmes, as well as opening up existing modules across more programmes. We will help you explore a range of global challenges, from climate change to hi-tech crime, based on our world-leading research.

You will have opportunities to gain the transferable skills employers really want, such as teamwork, leadership and learning another language.

Major / Minor options

If you choose to study a degree in Humanities or a Single Honours degree in Social Sciences, Education, Geography or Physics another way to follow your own interests and career aspirations is to try out a Minor subject area alongside your Major degree subject.

Within a defined subject area, you will have 'with a minor in [subject]' added to your degree certificate when you graduate, for example 'BA English with a minor in Politics'. Minor subject areas include Archaeology, Creative Writing, English, Politics, Music, Philosophy, modern languages and many others.

To find out more, see our Frequently Asked Questions.

We asked several students who have studied an interdisciplinary module to tell us about their experience.

Global health - Zara Livingstone

Living with environmental change - Harriet Fielding

"I think this chance to learn from others and their perspectives is a big positive for Curriculum Innovation. The practical elements of some of the modules, such as industry placements, will give students a chance to try things out in the 'real world' before they graduate."
