As a Natural Sciences student at Lancaster, you will take three pathways in your first year (Part I). At least two of these must come from pathways offered by the following departments.
||Computing and Communications
|Environmental and Earth Science
During your first year, you would normally take three equally weighted pathways. A pathway consists of a series of modules each covering a different aspect of a subject. Modules are made up of lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and laboratory-based practical work.
Successful completion of the first year allows you to progress into the second year. First-year marks do not contribute towards your final degree classification. It is from second, third and possibly fourth year (Part II) that your degree classification will be based. Each pathway offers a range of second, third and fourth-year modules to choose from.
