More about the course

Well, in your first year, you are required to choose a subject major from the wide range offered in the Faculty, and this will form approximately 50% of your degree in years two and three. Majors may typically include: Classical and Hellenic Studies, Comparative Literature, Digital Media & Culture, English, Film Studies, Geography, History, International Development, Modern Languages (French, German, Spanish, or Portuguese) - four years, with your third spent abroad, Music, Philosophy, Politics, Theology and Religious Studies. Please note, International Development is a new pathway for 2022 so some of the resources below may refer to there being 12 major options but now we have 13 on offer to you.
