What we believe and what we create

In each year, an Arts and Sciences student chooses 3 modules in their major and 1 in their minor. In year 1 students have a free choice of three modules in their major from the list offered, though some modules in year 1 may have certain A level requirements. Students have a free choice of one module in their minor, subject to timetabling constraints and A level requirements. Students choose major and minor modules in the first week of the course as part of the induction process.


Year 1

The 15 modules listed below are designated as best encapsulating the conception of the Cultures Pathway and are chosen to allow progression to the most number of higher level courses. Whilst every effort has been made to timetable these modules so that there are no clashes between any of them, we cannot guarantee that every combination is 100% clash-free.

Please note: module availability and content may be subject to change.
