Located on the southwest coast of Wales and at one end of the sweeping Bay of Swansea, Swansea University offers you a wonderful seaside playground with a flexible and comprehensive academic program. The campus is modern and compact and right on the coast. With unspoiled golden beaches, picturesque villages,numerous coastal trails and a university with strengths in math and the sciences, Swansea is a natural choice.
Known for its large American Studies program, as well as Anthropology and Sociology departments, Swansea provides a flexible academic approach in which you will be able to take courses across the curriculum.
All students are required to enroll in a special pre-session program that focuses on contemporary British politics, culture, and society. Through lectures, seminars, contemporary texts, and films, you'll explore the forces that have influenced British society since 1945. Field-study trips to the Museum of Welsh Life, Cardiff Castle, and Dylan Thomas' house will help to illuminate your studies. You will be required to complete a 1,500-word paper or examination when the course ends.
