BA Built & Natural Environment and Applied English Language Studies
Combined Studies offers you a degree which allows you to study course units from Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and some Sciences. The degree is structured around a range of disciplines, and is therefore able to draw on a wide range of University Schools in order to make a wide selection of courses available to you. The structure of the degree is designed to provide both coherence and flexibility.
The Built & Natural Environment study area enables you to select courses from Geography, Planning & Landscape, and Geology. Built & Natural Environment spans the divide between arts and sciences, allowing you to develop a broad but structured understanding of the global environment. Many of the course units offered have practical underpinnings and allow you to appreciate the local as well as the more global problems of environmental management.
The Applied English Language area of study provides an opportunity for international students for whom English is a foreign language (EFL) to study English in the same way as they might study another foreign language, alongside theoretical linguistics and the more professionally oriented `sub-pathways' of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages' (TESOL) and Translation Studies. This area of study is only appropriate for students for whom English is a foreign language. If you are a native speaker of English you should consider the Linguistics and English Language area of study offered as part of a Combined Studies course.
