    Course description

    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 Literary Studies area of specialisation allows you to study a wide variety of literature. The main bulk of the courses are provided by English and American Studies, but options are available from Drama, Comparative Literary Studies and Latin/Greek. Literary Studies is a very popular option with almost half of the students reading Combined Studies at any one time taking this area.

    Course units in the Religious Studies & Comparative Religion area fall into two fairly distinct groupings. One focus is provided by Comparative Religion, where you can study courses in the methodological aspects of religious study as well as on individual religions like Buddhism or Hinduism. In the second grouping you study religion from the specific angle of Christianity and other closely related religions (particularly Judaism). Biblical Studies offers course units in the criticism and exegesis of texts from the Old and New Testaments. Ecclesiastical History has courses on the historical background of Christianity. You select courses according to your own particular interests which often go on to provide the subject of a dissertation in the third year.

    Special features

    Career opportunities
    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.
