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 Jewish Studies area of specialisation enables you to study courses from Middle Eastern Studies and Religions & Theology. A coherent programme of studies draws upon course units from Middle Eastern Studies, Religions & Theology and Archaeology. Whilst the programme will appeal to Jewish students in providing a unique insight and source of understanding of their own tradition, the course units are also taken by many non-Jewish students.
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.
