A NEW School of Society and Culture at the University of Plymouth is offering students access to courses across the social sciences, law, humanities and performing arts.

With a focus on ‘hands-on’ learning, the courses enable students to personalise their degree and delve into wider subjects across the portfolio.

A Creative Writing student can see their script come to life with a module in Drama, or a Law student could explore the political landscapes that shape our legal systems with a politics module.

A multi-disciplinary approach sits at the heart of the School through partnerships with major South West organisations like The Box and Theatre Royal, Plymouth who are engaging students in practical learning across English, creative writing, history, drama, acting and music.

Links with partners such as Exeter Prison bring new insights to students interested in criminology, with the option to study alongside prisoners. And the new on-campus community law clinic allows students to use their skills to support those most in need. 

Commenting on the launch, Professor Annika Bautz, Head of the School of Culture and Society, said: “Our degrees give you experience of using your studies in the real world by getting hands-on in the community and with industry partners throughout your degree, ensuring you graduate with experience that sets you apart. Studying with us also means you have the opportunity to follow your passions and explore what really inspires and motivates you.”

Students can get a taste of the new School at an open day tomorrow (Saturday October 9) October: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/study/open-days/ugopendays
