American Studies and Geography is an interdisciplinary degree programme which includes the study of American History, Literature, Politics and Geography.
Joint Honours students study six modules per year, three in American Studies and three in Geography.
All applicants receive individual consideration. Our preferred offers for UK applicants are ABB-BBB at A-level with a B in Geography. However, flexible offers are made on review of the application form, after taking into consideration the subjects studied, predicted or achieved grades, reference and personal statement.
For candidates offering the International Baccalaureate, a typical offer would be 32 points. We ask for Welsh Baccalaureate plus BB at A-level. Access candidates should have 18 Distinctions and 18 Merits. Candidates studying for American qualifications should have a minimum of 550 in each part of the SAT reasoning and subject tests (or 1650 overall). We require a minimum IELT score of 6.0.
