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 increasing recognition of the centrality of linguistics as a model for other disciplines has made it an interesting partner for a wide variety of courses of study. Though the coverage of material in Linguistics is more limited than in most other areas of specialisation there are many possibilities of fruitful interaction with other subjects, especially by the third year.
-Combine arts, social sciences and some sciences in a single degree programme.
-Wide range of courses available.
A degree in Combined Studies gives access to numerous possibilities for further study or training, and future employment: our students have become teachers, translators, journalists, social workers; have joined TV companies and multi-national firms; have entered, in fact, all the careers usually open to Arts and Social Science graduates. Many go on to postgraduate study. In our experience many employers look favourably on students who have demonstrated their abilities in more than one field.
