Inter-domain major

Inter-domain major

The requirements for a Bachelor of Arts or Science with an inter-domain major appear in section 3 of the Academic Rules and Regulations for your cohort.  

An inter-domain major can be a good choice for a student with a strong interest in two related disciplines from two different academic domains.  Once an inter-domain major has been declared, however, a student's programme is less flexible than it would be if they were enrolled in a single-domain Humanities, Social Sciences or Science major. 

Requesting an Inter-domain Major

Inter-domain majors meet graduation requirements with their own combination of courses. This combination of courses must form a coherent whole, and students requesting an inter-domain major must motivate that combination when they apply for an inter-domain major. Students must submit their request for inter-domain major to the UCU Exam Board via their tutors. 

Methodology Courses

Inter-domain majors must take all methodology courses required for majors in the departments from which their inter-domain programme draws. 

  • One mathematics course
  • Three lab modules
Social Science
  • UACCMET22, 23, 24 or 25

Major Courses

Inter-domain majors may complete requirements with tracks in any of the academic disciplines available for Humanities, Social Sciences or Science majors.
