Assessment

We use a variety of assessment methods, allowing you to develop important transferable skills. You’ll show your progress through a mixture of case studies, presentations, essays, patchwork texts (short pieces of writing, or ‘patches’, built up week by week), portfolios, poster presentations, data analysis exercises, examinations and group projects, as well as an individual Major Project.

We know how important helpful feedback is and embed opportunities for formative feedback into our modules so you can make the best progress possible.

Where you'll study

Your department and faculty

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences is an academic community of nearly 800 students and teaching staff. Our students are supported by leading practitioners, so you'll always have access to the latest theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as invaluable career advice. Subjects in the Humanities and Social Sciences lead to work in many roles you might not have considered, maybe as a politician, chief executive – or even an inventor.

We organise many activities to help our students prepare for their future, like work placements, study abroad opportunities, talks by acclaimed guest speakers, and research conferences.

We’re part of the Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences, a centre of creative and cultural industries whose groundbreaking research has real social impact.
