Advice for First Year
In first year, students are encouraged to choose courses in subjects such as English, political science, history, geography, economics and religion.
Most students combine studies in this area with another focus such as history, cinema studies, geography, political science, or English.
The program emphasizes skills in research, writing, and critical thinking and thus provides an excellent foundation for further work in any of these fields, as well as applied areas such as law, public policy, communications and media, and others.
