New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The English major combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College’s liberal arts tradition. These include the study of rhetoric, the study of stylistics, and comparison between literatures in English, literatures in different languages, different art forms, and between literary criticism and cognate disciplines. The study of Politics & International Relations comprises political theory looking at normative questions, and political science looking at the organisation of government. International Relations examines governance, institution-building and decision-making through an analysis of historical phenomena, economic conditions, diplomatic relations, security and socio-cultural linkages among state and non-state sectors.
