BA Year One - Three Subject Structure
The first year of a BA degree is structured so that normally students take 3 subjects, each of 40 credits.
In the case of Joint Honours students, they must normally enrol on a third subject (40 credits) in addition to the two Honours subjects for which they have already been accepted.
In the case of single Honours students, they must normally enrol on a second and a third subject, each of 40 credits, in addition to their Honours subject.
In some cases a particular second subject is required or strongly recommended by the school in question, and schools often advise Honours students which other year one subjects are particularly appropriate for their degree programme. Students may, of course, take both their additional subjects within the same subject area; many schools offer more than one first year subject.
Students on the following programmes are required to take 2 x 40 credits in their Honours subject:
BA English Language Single Hons
BA English Language & Literature Single Hons (Students are required to take 40 credits in English Language and 40 credits in English Literature, and are strongly encouraged to take the remaining 40 credits in either of these two subjects).
BA English Literature Single Hons (Students are required to take either English Literature II or Medieval & Renaissance English Literature, in addition to English Literature I. However, students are strongly encouraged to take all three subjects.)
- 60 + 60
The BA programmes listed below are structured 60 + 60. In some cases a subject can offer no more than 40 credits* but the relevant Board of Studies is responsible for helping students on that programme enrol on a suitable additional 20 credit module.
BA Joint Hons Maths and Philosophy *
BA Joint Hons Sociology and Philosophy *
