Culture and Identity

 

Overview

This pathway was formed by a collection of our first cohort of students who wanted to turn their critical attention to the ways in which individuals and societies generate and interact with culture. Cutting across the arts and humanities, anthropology, geography, sociology, and politics, this pathway has supported students to focus on areas not otherwise offered at Warwick.

Students on this pathway have combined modules on film, music, policy, and cultural theory, with modules relating to management, education, and psychology.

Modules

This pathway is an ‘open pathway’ in that it is not set in stone, and you are free to select relevant optional modules from across the University – with guidance from your personal tutor and our Liberal Arts Director of Undergraduate Studies – to suit the aspect of Culture and Identity that you are exploring. The optional modules listed below represent an illustration of the route which you might take through the pathway, but many other variations are possible.

Please note that module offerings change year to year and so individual modules may vary.
