Course Introduction

Would you like to study literature, art, film and media, theatre studies and cultural studies within a single degree? You can do just that by designing your own programme of study with expert guidance from our specialists. With its extensive range of option modules, this course gives you the flexibility to pursue multidisciplinary interests and then specialise in areas that you find interesting. You can pursue your interests across the arts and humanities, choosing to study film and media, English and humanities, history of art, or a language and its associated culture, separately or in interdisciplinary combinations. You will examine culture through literary and philosophical texts, art and cinema, the mass media and digital technologies.

Course Modules

In Year 1, you take two compulsory Humanities modules and choose two School of Arts option modules at Level 4.

In Year 2, you take one compulsory Humanities module, and choose two option modules at Level 5 and one option module at Level 6.
