    I'm actually planning on applying for this degree next year, mainly because I can avoid doing literature.
    So you're from New York? I have family there.

    Actually to be brutally honest, I'm from near NYC, North Brunswick NJ- I put NYC on my profile because I did'nt think anyone would have heard of it. I go into the City all the time, it's about 45 minutes away.

    What have you heard about this degree? I have a conditional offer and it's decision time.

    We've heard of New Jersey before! I've been there, nice beaches.
    Well I've heard that it's very interesting, and you can choose which area to specialise in i.e. film studies, art history etc.
    If you go onto UCL's website there'll be more info about it there. www.ucl.ac.uk
    Congrats on the offer, I heard they only have places for about 40 people on that degree!

    NJ is kind of quiet, but I'll miss it. Thanks for the congrats and for the info about the course, I've been on the website lots, but would also like to find out what people's experiences of the course have been, because it's new (2004). Is there anyone out there on TSR who is doing this course?

    What are you studying Paddy?

    I believe there is a user called Vonderlust on here that has an offer for your course too. You might try looking on the UCL subforum.
    I'm not studying a course just yet!

    Ok so I'm not at UCL but what I found from the prospectus on modules e.g Latin American History, French culture etc Is that they like to use complicated words to make the course sound really academic when it's not so bad! I specifically asked about what was to be done in all 3 out of the 4 years so I could avoid literature at all costs (after a traumatised year with German literature). Anything that doesn't look like your cup of sweet tea, check your module options or other uni's.

    I swear though practically ALL the UCL Spanish modules were literature based, and those that weren't were about cinema/theatre (and the one language module) Don't get me wrong, I do like Spanish literaure and cinema, but I don't want it to be all my degree!!
