Arts Sciences



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.
