War and Society with a Foundation Year - Swansea University

The War and Society Foundation Year will offer an exciting introduction to higher education and is part of a 4-year undergraduate integrated degree. This foundation year will ideally suit those that need a little more support after further education before undertaking an undergraduate degree, or those returning to education after a gap. The inclusive learning environment, delivered by an expert programme team, will meet your needs to feel comfortable at Swansea University. We are interested in your future and committed to supporting you to get where you want to be, and this foundation year will be a great place to start your journey in higher education. The foundation programme offers exciting and innovative content in the modules that deal with the notion and understanding of what it is to be human. You will explore what it is to be human using the humanities and social sciences, including a great variety of theory and literature delivered by academics within your full degree subject area. A final year project supervised from a subject expert in the War and Society degree teaching team will allow you to explore an area of interest to you within your chosen discipline. After progression from the foundation year, you will cover topics including terrorism, ancient and contemporary war and conflict, human rights and global justice. Our interdisciplinary approach means you make connections with a range of subject areas, examining past cultures up to the present, incorporating history, literature, art, philosophy, music, and cinema. Teaching on the course is informed by our world-leading research and you will be taught by academic staff who are specialist researchers and teachers from the subjects of American Studies, Classical and Egyptian Studies, History, Politics and International Relations, Literature and Media Studies. Some 91% of our graduates are employed or in further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from HE survey 2015), and 74% of our students achieved a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in 2016/17. Our War and Society graduates have careers in the armed forces, government and politics, humanitarian organisations, journalism and media and public services. Swansea University is awarded Gold by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF Gold). Based on our stunning Singleton Park campus, in parkland overlooking Swansea Bay on the edge of the Gower Peninsula, the course will give you a thorough understanding of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. All applications will be considered on an individual basis, and we will look at the whole application when deciding whether to make an offer of a place, including: the balance, nature and quality of your qualifications and/or professional experience, personal statement and referee’s comments. **We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.**
