Human, Social and Political Sciences

The flexibility of the HSPS degree offers students the possibility of studying subjects which may be new to them (e.g. international relations or social anthropology) before pursuing advanced study in one or two specific subjects in their second and third years. Alternatively, those students who already know the areas in which they wish to specialise can tailor the course to suit their interests from the start, whilst retaining the option to take individual papers in other subjects as well. Other subjects may include archaeology, biological anthropology or history.
