About this course

Students can choose from modules covering the historical foundations of Western cultures and political systems. These modules are structured around the student-centred learning approach with extensive reading as students practice study skills you will need for more independent research later in your degree. Students will also embark on your language training in Spanish/German/French/Japanese/Chinese, which is designed to foster the multi-lingual communication skills needed to be successful in the international arena today. Besides a taught module the focus of this program involves an individual dissertation project.
