Arts and Sciences students choose a major and a minor pathway on application; your pathways determine the subjects you can specialise in. We offer four pathways: Cultures, Health and Environment, Sciences and Engineering, and Societies.
Students choosing Cultures or Societies as their major must choose
Health and Environment or Sciences and Engineering as their minor
pathway, and vice versa. This ensures that you study a mix of arts and
sciences courses throughout your programme.
50% of your study time is spent on the pathways, your major and minor
combined. The remaining 50% is spent on the Core.
However, many of your Core modules are specially designed and written to
have impact and relevance to the subject specialisms you study on the
pathways. For example, Exploring Complexity: Quantitative Methods will
support you in many modules on the Societies, Health and Environment and
Sciences and Engineering Pathways.

Please note that some options within a pathway may require prerequisite subjects at A Level or equivalent.
