You will also be given the opportunity to pursue specialist areas of particular interest. A mixture of core and optional modules will be employed, which allows you to follow certain areas of interest, while acquiring a sound knowledge of the main elements of both subjects. Equal weighting is given to both subjects throughout the three years of the degree.
