In years one and two you will take a combination of bespoke core units and a choice of optional units from the full range of disciplines offered in the Faculty of Arts. The core units address foundational issues in the arts and humanities and teach crucial skills in analysis and communication that will be valuable to you throughout your degree and beyond. You will take a numeracy and a language unit during the first two years, as well as embarking on your specialist subject pathway. At least a quarter of your studies will be devoted to your subject pathway. This may be one of the disciplines taught by a department in the Faculty of Arts, or a cross-departmental pathway in medieval studies or film studies. The final year includes a dissertation and The Public Role of the Humanities, a unit that provides opportunities for working with organisations outside the University.
