Ancient History with Irish Studies University of Liverpool

Undergraduate

Our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences offers students a flexible and exciting way to study through its innovative Honours Select degree programme. Honours Select gives you the opportunity to design a degree that’s tailored to suit your specific interests, academic strengths and career aspirations. You can choose to study one or two subjects from a wide selection of more than 30, and decide for yourself how much weight each subject has.

This Major/Minor (75:25) programme combines Ancient History with Irish Studies. Most Honours Select combinations allow you to adapt the weighting of each by 25% after the first year, helping you to keep your options open. To find out more about your programme choice, please go first to our Honours Select webpages: www.liverpool.ac.uk/honours-select.

This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
