Students must choose modules equivalent to 60 ECTS, choosing 30 ECTS from two of the four disciplines available (Philosophy, Political Science, Economics, Sociology).

Please note: Students who intend to follow a single honor degree pathway may take 40 ECTS from that discipline and the remaining 20 ECTS from their second discipline.

Modules chosen in JS year will determine the range of modules available to you in the SS year.

It is important to consider module prerequisites and programme requirements, which are outlined in the module list below.

Students must take an even distribution of ECTS across terms, 30 ECTS in Michaelmas Term and 30 ECTS in Hilary Term
