MASc optional modules

The module list below is an indicative rather than an exhaustive list of possible optional modules. If you wish to take other optional modules from across the university, please discuss with your Personal Tutor and the Programme Director.

Please note that if any optional modules are run in Term 1, it may not be possible to enrol on them. As the majority of optional modules are outside the School for Cross-faculty Studies, it will be the other department's decision when and whether modules run in the next academic year.
