First, some explanations and technical terms
This will likely be your first degree. We call it an UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE. Some degrees are called GENERAL degrees – you choose which subjects and modules you will study. Other degrees are more STRUCTURED and most of what you will study is already selected for you. A list of general and structured degrees that are offered in the College of Humanities can be found here.
Each degree should have at least TWO MAJOR SUBJECTS. A SUBJECT (e.g. Psychology, Sociology, Drama and Performance Studies) consists of related course material that may be spread over several modules at one or more levels of study. A MAJOR SUBJECT is usually studied from first-year through to third-year level. Each major subject in a general degree will make up about one third of the curriculum for the degree as a whole. You may not select more than one major from another College.
A MODULE is any separate course of study for which you obtain credits when you successfully complete the module. Some modules have a PREREQUISITE module. A prerequisite module is a module that has to be passed with at least the minimum mark in order to study some other specified module.
Likewise, an ANCILLARY module is a module that is required as a corequisite or prerequisite to a proposed module. All such modules must have been passed before the relevant qualification may be awarded. Please refer to the College of Humanities Handbook for a comprehensive list of definition of terms.
