and have a very strong background in the subject, it is unwise to take more than one 300 level course.
In the listing that follows, (H) designates a half-unit course and, therefore, one that counts for only half the ‘weight’ of a full-year course: typically, all of its teaching is contained in just one term and students would take two half-units instead of one full year course. All courses, including half-unit courses, are examined at the end of the Summer Term.

Social anthropology is concerned with the variety of human societies and cultures. Social anthropologists try to explain the causes of this variation and also to understand what it means to belong to societies and cultures which, at first sight, appear very foreign to ours. Study of the subject should help you see what is universal to all human societies and what is variable, and help you to understand the dilemmas of society in the modern world.

Economics is the systematic study of questions such as: how much of its income a household chooses to save and what goods it chooses to buy; how many people a business chooses to employ and how it sets its prices; how the price system in a market economy allocates resources and incomes; and how all the households and businesses in the country interact
to determine national output, the balance of payments, inflation and unemployment. It reveals why purely self-interested behaviour may nevertheless produce a desirable outcome for society as a whole. But it also reveals how easily this process can go awry, justifying government intervention. A case in point is the need for coordinated international action to limit environmental pollution. Above all, the study of economics develops a mental approach suitable for analysing a whole range of problems, often well outside what is conventionally thought of as the domain of economics.
