Societies Year 1 choices

The modules listed below are designated as best encapsulating the conception of the Societies 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.

It is not possible to take ECON0002, ECON0095, SESS0007 or SESS0008 in the Sciences and Engineering pathway or as a mix between the Sciences and Engineering and Societies pathways. Economics modules can only be taken under Sciences and Engineering OR Societies, not both.
