Plenty of York courses let you study topics outside your immediate subject as part of your degree.

You could choose something from another discipline, or learn a language to give your skills a boost.

Interdisciplinary modules

On York Interdisciplinary Modules, you'll be taught by academics from different departments, and work with students from across the University.

As an example, you might want to look into environmental and societal challenges. Our 'Climate Crisis Action Lab', 'Future of Food' and 'Sustainability Clinic' modules have you covered.

Language modules

Learning a language can grow your understanding of other cultures, prepare you for studying abroad, and give you an employability in a globalised world.

You can choose from a range of languages to study alongside your course, from Arabic to Modern Greek, from beginner to advanced.

I'm taking Japanese as an elective. It’s so refreshing to learn something completely different to my degree, and a great way to make friends.
