Teaching and learning

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 15 or 30 credits, adding up to a total of 120 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 30-credit module is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Upon successful completion of 360 credits, you will be awarded a BASc (Hons) in your chosen Arts and Sciences pathway.

Modules

Please note that the list of modules given here is indicative. This information is published a long time in advance of enrolment and module content and availability is subject to change. Modules that are in use for the current academic year are linked for further information. Where no link is present, further information is not yet available.

Full-time

The programme offers a wide combination of specialist modules and an interdisciplinary core. The Core modules enable you to acquire the skills, methods and concepts you will need to work effectively across multiple disciplines. They link traditional UCL subjects in new ways and incorporate many new modes of assessment.

You will study a modern foreign language throughout your degree and you can also undertake an internship. Possible internships include businesses, non-government organisations (NGOs) and voluntary organisations. Our students have taken internships in almost every sector of work. For example, Accenture, the English National Opera, Goldman Sachs, The Met Office, Google, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Norton Rose Fulbright, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the United Nations, the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and many other organisations and businesses.

You will choose a major and a minor pathway on application, so if you choose to major in one of the sciences pathways, you must minor in one of the arts pathways or vice versa. Your pathway determines the subjects in which you will specialise. We offer two arts and two sciences pathways.

Cultures (Humanities and Arts): Anthropology, Art, Creative Writing, Cultural Studies, Design and Visualisation, Film and Documentary Film-Making, History, History of Art, Languages, Literature, Music, Philosophy

Societies (Social Sciences): Archaeology, Economics, Geography, History, International Relations, Law, Management, Philosophy, Political Economy, Politics, Sociology

Health and Environment (Sciences): Anthropology, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Biomedicine, Environmental Sciences, Geography, Geology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Psychology

Sciences and Engineering (Sciences): Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics

Year 1

In your first year, you will take four* compulsory modules from the Core of the degree, three modules from your major pathway and one from your minor pathway.

(*If Sciences and Engineering is your major pathway, you will take five compulsory modules from the Core of the degree, the compulsory MATH0012 Mathematical Methods for Arts and Sciences from your major, another two modules from your major and one from your minor pathway).

The choices available in your first year are deliberately limited and are deemed “gateway” modules as they will allow you the best opportunities to take follow-on modules in your second year.

As one of your Core modules, you are required to take a language as taught by the Centre for Languages and International Education (CLIE) or the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES). You can choose to begin a new language from beginnerlevel or continue learning a language you have previously studied.

Year 2

You have greater flexibility in your module choices in your second year. You are required to take at least one Core module, at least one Interdisciplinary Elective and continue with your language. You can then choose to take one more Core or Interdisciplinary Elective or use the extra module in your major or minor pathway.

Providing you meet any specified module pre-requisites, the choices available to you in your major and minor pathway open up and you are able to take modules from across almost all UCL departments.Your Personal Tutor will help with module choices.

At the end of your second year, you are encouraged but not required to take an internship. You will receive support from a dedicated Arts and Sciences Work Based Learning Manager who will advertise internships for well-known schemes as well as source opportunities exclusively for BASc students.

Final Year

During your final year, you will continue with your Core language, take the compulsory 'The Knowledge Economy' module and complete an interdisciplinary dissertation. You will choose the topic of your dissertation, which is expected to draw upon one or more of your previous or final year modules.

The remaining 50% of your final year will be your pathway modules. You can choose to take three in your major and one in your minor or two in your major and two in your minor.

Your learning

You will be exposed to a wide range of learning opportunities, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive groups and multimedia projects. Core modules will be taken alongside your fellow BASc students. Modules relating to your pathway subjects will be taught by specialist staff from across UCL and will provide you with an opportunity to learn alongside students on other programmes.

Due to the wide range of modules that may be taken by BASc students, there is not a typical timetable for a BASc student. Science majors typically receive more contact hours because of lab requirements. Arts (including social science) majors typically have fewer contact hours but are required to undertake more reading outside of the class. These may vary depending on modules chosen. On all pathways you would be expected to spend 40 hours a week in full-time study, which is made up of a mixture of contact hours and self-directed study.

Assessment

Both your pathway subjects and the language component will be assessed by written examinations and essays. Project work and a dissertation will contribute to your overall assessment. You will be required to give presentations and work on group projects.

Accessibility

Details of the accessibility of UCL buildings can be obtained from AccessAble. Further information can also be obtained from the .
