Breadth modules offer you the opportunity to understand other subjects outside of your pathway. They will enable you to become a flexible, inter-disciplinary thinker with the ability to understand a range of challenges in issues in the Arts, Sciences and Social Sciences.
Your breadth modules will typically be in areas very different to your potential major and will enable you to understand the ways that specialist in other fields think and work.
These modules are not designed to introduce you to a subject; instead these are modules offered by our leading academics designed to familiarise you (as a non-specialist) with the most important topics and issues confronting researchers working in other fields. In addition to the subject understanding developed in these modules, each module will help you to develop important skills which complement your potential major.
By their very nature the modules on offer will constantly adapt to reflect the evolving expertise that is required by our graduates and the expertise of our leading researchers, influenced by new technologies, employment patterns and environmental change.
Dewan, CEO and Founding Partner, Hassium Asset Management LLP "The multidisciplinary nature of the programme and the wide variety of opportunities it offers in terms of study abroad, internships, mentoring etc will develop graduates that are more well-rounded, robust and ultimately more employable. I believe that increased flexibility and later, more informed, subject specialisation will result in graduates who have a clearer vision of where they want to get to than students who have followed a more traditional UK single-subject disciplinary route"
