Working with a cross- disciplinary team of professionals, the course will allow you to learn about radical ideas, evolve these ideas and test them in a ‘lived’ organisational environment. The MDes Social Innovation will demonstrate that many of the most successful designs, innovations and innovators have learned to operate across the boundaries between disciplines, sectors, organisations and traditional services. At its heart lie three design principles: an holistic approach - the need to approach innovation from a ‘holistic’ point of view, drawing on its potential impact in terms of people, technology, the environment, psychological and emotional meaning and long-term sustainability a core intent - the potential to develop a...

The subject of English is one of the most wide-ranging subjects of study offered at university. Although the focus is on literature, the nature of English literature exposes students to thinking in other realms of history, politics, philosophy and more. This makes the UK, with its world-renown education system, one of the best places in the world to study such a multi-disciplinary subject. Another thrill for English literature students, specific to the UK, is the knowledge that many of the authors studied in class were not only from the UK, but often still have remnants around the country for students to visit, such as the houses of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, Wordsworth and so many more. At the undergraduate level, students can expect an overview of English literature, ranging from Medieval to twenty-first century. Students will have the opportunity to choose optional modules (classes) alongside the required core modules, which will enable them to focus more on certain areas of interest, such as Victorian literature, creative writing, American literature, Gothic literature, children’s literature, Shakespeare, and many more. In England and Wales the degree will consist of three years of study; in Scotland the degree is four years. In the former, students can expect to take a heaver load of core classes the first year, gradually adding more optional modules as the years progress and they learn their own areas of greatest interest. Students will usually write a dissertation in the third year, though some universities have... [-]
