Personalise your School of Society and Culture degree


Make your degree your own

We offer a unique course structure that allows you to study topics that are important to you. All our degrees have a wide range of optional modules that allow you to follow your interests and play to your strengths.

Dive deeper into your subject
Choose to take optional modules within the structure of your course which fit your particular academic interests as they emerge.

Branch out and explore new subject areas
Choose to take optional modules taught across different degrees within the School of Society and Culture.


Study a combination of subject areas

If you choose to study three modules from the same subject area (outside your core degree), you will be able to add this second subject area to your final degree certificate:

BA/BSc (Hons) [core degree] with [second subject area]


Add a law component to your study of politics or mix things up and express yourself through creative writing or drama – the possibilities are almost endless.

We know that you need time to develop your interests. You don’t have to make any decisions about modules until the second year of your core degree.

We will support you in choosing modules and subjects that are best suited for your interests, academic strengths and chosen career path.
