The information for NatSci at Lancaster says this:
"In the first year, all students begin with three pathways. You must choose two science pathways, and a third that can either be another science topic or you can select from elsewhere across the University, including a range of humanities and social sciences."
I can't seem to find which other subjects you can take, exactly, as it seems pretty vague. If possible I would like to take linguistics with it, but I don't know if that's possible.

On the website theres a chat to a student : https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/chat/ and there are 4 students that do natural sciences. They will be able to tell you more about the third options

Hi,

I am an Ecology and Conservation student at Lancaster University. In my first year I did 2 parts ecology and one part environmental science.

When I was selecting my "minor", we were given a handbook before we started which provided you with the potential options to take for your third part. For me, the options were restricted to a select few which were suggested as the best to complement you major choice. For an example, I was guided towards geography, environmental science and biology over something like film studies. However, I do know people who took subjects like Spanish, so Linguistics doesn't sound too out of the realm of possibility.

Unfortunately I cannot say for certainty what your options are. It may be worth contacting the department directly to get some clarification, but they will provide you with all your options in due course.

Hope this helps.

I did this degree and a few people took languages as one of their pathways. I don't remember there being an option for linguistics. I would advise to either contact the department or just do it as a minor which is offered in pretty much every other science programme though you will have to drop it after first year whereas with natural sciences you can do it till 3rd/4th year.

HOWEVER, I honestly don't recommend this degree to anyone. Its very difficult managing often three different departments and the timetable can be full of classes. I often had to pick which class I wanted to turn up to. Also the current course director is not a nice man and has been very controversial in the past, especially with regards to mental health and bereavement. As its such a small department there aren't many people to turn to. If you don't need any pastoral support then you'll be fine though.
