Honours and Masters

Planning your study

All postgraduate students should consult a programme coordinator to ensure the choice of papers meets their individual requirements. Entry into courses in other departments may require training in those disciplines and the permission of the appropriate Head of Department is normally needed before enrolment.

Further information is available in the postgraduate handbook on the College of Humanitites and Social Sciences website.
