We bring together academics from across the University. Our courses are interdisciplinary, allowing you to study a variety of subjects
by choosing from modules
in literature, history, philosophy, the history of art, sociology and politics. Our focus stretches across
the world, with courses in American (US) Studies, European Studies,
Latin American Studies and Liberal Arts. This gives you
a unique opportunity to look at issues and subjects in new and exciting ways.
We believe that the best way for you to learn about a culture is to immerse yourself in it. This is why most of
our courses include a period of study in a different country. Here you will gain new insights into a culture, hone
your language skills and develop personally. All of our courses are flexible and give you the control to select
the subjects you are interested in.
