About This Course You can gain the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to excel in a humanities degree with our innovative Foundation Year programme. At UEA we believe everyone should have the chance to study at degree level. If you have a passion for your subject, but for whatever reason, don’t yet have the grades required for the three-year programme, our Foundation Year is a great choice. You’ll undertake an intensive and exciting year of study, majoring in your chosen subject and developing your study skills. We offer a rigorous but supportive teaching and learning experience that is also very rewarding. When you successfully finish your Foundation Year, you’ll be perfectly placed to progress to your BA American Studies degree. Overview You will study with dedicated lecturers from UEA’s Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, exploring a wide range of academic subjects including Literature, History, Philosophy, Film, Television and Media, American Studies, Politics and the History of Art. You’ll benefit from smaller class sizes and individual tutorials, helping you to get the most out of the year. You’ll gain a sound theoretical basis for your continuing studies, as well as discovering new areas of study. You’ll be actively encouraged to develop your own scholarly interests and ideas throughout the year. We’ll support you as you cultivate your study skills, gaining essential knowledge of many of the concepts, methods and techniques you will need in order to thrive on your degree programme. This is a very supportive programme and we’ll work closely with you to identify and work towards your own individual learning goals. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
