When making your module selection for Level 3 (or 3rd Year), please ensure your modules amount to a total of 120 credits.  Please note that module credits are now worth 30 CREDITS per module.  You should normally take TWO 30 credit modules (60 credits) in each semester although language modules are year-long modules and worth 30 credits.  By studying a language module, you will take THREE other 30 credit modules.  By the end of the academic year you must have achieved 360 credits in total, including 120 credits at Level 3 and a minimum of 80 credits at Level 2.

The availability of compulsory modules for degree pathways will be guaranteed, however the availability of some non-compulsory module combinations may be subject to timetable restrictions.  Places on Level 3 modules are restricted and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  The School of Humanities normally holds an Honours Module Fair at the beginning of March which is highly recommended to attend.

Under University regulations you can make module changes within the first two weeks of each semester.

Further information on the compulsory modules for degree pathways and the content of modules can be found on the Humanities website at:  www.dundee.ac.uk/humanities/ugmodules

Modules in Level 3 and Level 4 are worth 30 credits each with the exception of History Level 4 Special Subjects which are worth 60 credits and are specifically year-long.  You normally take TWO modules in each semester, with the exception of language modules and the History Special Subject modules.
