Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

* Fees shown are for 2019/20 academic year. The University will review tuition fees and increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases would be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).

Additional costs

The programme team advises students to purchase a Newman sports polo shirt.  This is so students can wear the shirt when representing the university externally (e.g., on placements).  The cost is £16.99 (based on 2017/18) and payment of this optional item is due in the first year of study or second year of study (placement).

Opportunities for field trip both local and international will be made available to students which would incur additional costs. Examples of recent field trips include:

The Gambian Field Experience – £800

FC Barcelona Field Experience – £400

Walsall Football Club Field Trip – public transport or private (own car) travel costs.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

  • Full Time
BASES event at Newman

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change.

BASES event at Newman

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

BASES event at Newman

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds.

Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Course Fees

Fees per academic year:
Full-time Home/EU students: £9,250 *

* Fees shown are for 2019/20 academic year. The University will review tuition fees and increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases would be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).

Additional Costs

There are no anticipated additional costs associated with studying Theology or Philosophy. Some modules include field trips to local places of worship, art galleries or education centres. Students are not required to pay for these study visits, which are covered by the fees, but will have to meet the costs of their own travel to these sites via local public transport. (A National Express bus Daysaver is currently £4.60 for the day).

Optional activities such as studying abroad do, however, incur additional costs.

A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is not required for entry into this programme, although it is in some cases required by employers before students can begin their compulsory Year 2 (level 5) work placement.  Find out more about completing the DBS application form and the related additional costs.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

You must achieve at least 96 UCAS points including a minimum of CC at A level or equivalent (e.g.MM at BTEC Diploma; MPP at BTEC Extended Diploma) towards the total tariff.

Access Students can achieve the requirements with the following combination of Distinction, Merit and/ or Pass grades at level 3 achieved from a completed Access course. 96 UCAS Points: D21-M3-P21; D18-M9-P18; D15-M15-P15; D12-M21-P12; D9-M27-P9; D6-M33-P6; D3-M39-P3; D0-M45-P0.

Course Fees

Fees per academic year:
Full-time Home/EU students: £9,250 *

* Fees shown are for 2019/20 academic year. The University will review tuition fees and increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases would be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).

Additional Costs

The programme team advises students to purchase a Newman sports polo shirt.  This is so students can wear the shirt when representing the university externally (e.g., on placements).  The cost is £16.99 (based on 2017/18) and payment of this optional item is due in the first year of study or second year of study (placement).

Opportunities for field trip both local and international will be made available to students which would incur additional costs. Examples of recent field trips include:

The Gambian Field Experience – £800

FC Barcelona Field Experience – £400

Walsall Football Club Field Trip – public transport or private (own car) travel costs.

A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is not required for entry into this programme, although it is in some cases required by employers before students can begin their Year 2 (level 5) work placement.  Find out more about completing the DBS application form and the related additional costs.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.

Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Domestic field trips are free of charge to our students. We occasionally run an optional overseas field trip that, while subsidised, does require some financial input from students.

Applied Humanities BA (Hons) - Accelerated Degree

Master's Degree , Full-time

Key Details

  • 1 Year
BASES event at Newman

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

BASES event at Newman

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.

Overview

This course is planned to start in September 2020 and is currently subject to successful validation. Validation is a standard academic procedure to ensure course content is current and reflects subject area knowledge.

The Applied Humanities BA, designed in collaboration with local government, businesses and third-sector organisations, equips students for success in the graduate market. This accelerated degree programme allows students to complete their study over two-years, providing a much-needed flexible option for potential students of all ages and backgrounds. Students will make financial savings on the overall cost of tuition fees and accommodation without compromising on the quality or intensity of a standard undergraduate degree. As the first of its kind in the UK, Applied Humanities makes use of Newman University’s strong position in the region to provide our students with real-life expertise and connections. External organisations will work alongside our academics to make this programme responsive to a rapidly changing world. Partner input into the construction of the degree ensures that students gain the skills and experience that are highly valued by graduate employers and the practical know-how to operate in the fourth industrial revolution.

Students will learn how to transform this data into well-crafted and specific job applications which build on their real-life achievements. The Applied Humanities BA unearths hidden potential and acts as a stepping stone to a self-directed career which can move seamlessly from private-sector business to government and public service.

Why study this course?

  • Follow an accelerated degree programme which will save time and money without compromising on teaching intensity or quality.
  • Build a living CV, demonstrating a range of professional competencies and develop essential digital skills.
  • Follow a fully-integrated programme which builds towards a special project of the student’s choice.
  • Acquire the enviable cultural knowledge of a traditional humanities graduate alongside indispensable practical skills gained through experiential learning.
  • Undertake two bespoke ‘problem-solving’ modules and apply high-level critical and creative thinking to real-life issues.
  • Connect with a network of regional organisations including NGOs, local businesses and media and political organisations.

What does the course cover?

Applied Humanities students will make their voice heard as they progress from theoretical study, to project design and management, to managing a media campaign. The programme has been constructed to augment the cognitive skills that already underpin humanities research: the ability to think independently, critically and creatively. Theoretical engagement with literature, history, philosophy and theology, will be contextualised in a practical setting. Students will discover how to harness their creativity with sophisticated digital proficiency alongside high-level organisational skills. Over the course of their studies, they will create a living CV that demonstrates a range of professional competencies.

What careers could I consider?

Increased automation and digitisation are rapidly changing our world and the workplace. As we enter a fourth industrial revolution, employers are looking for creative people with high-level problem-solving skills and the emotional intelligence to lead others and work in a team. Applied humanities graduates will be able to demonstrate all of these things and to show how they have already worked in their communities and brought about meaningful change. The boundaries between traditional career paths are blurring and our graduates can choose to work in a range of roles in the corporate, government or charitable sector or establishing their own businesses.
