In 2013, we 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.
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.
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
