Here you can find short guides to introduce the individual subjects offered at St Catharine's College.

The Directors of Studies at St Catharine's who teach in each subject have developed short guides to give a brief flavour of what you can expect - including details about admissions, the structure of the course, and the academics at the College who teach that subject.

Please note that we no longer admit undergraduates to read Architecture, Education, Linguistics, or History of Art. We welcome applicants in every other subject. In addition, please note that we do not admit applicants in Law who already hold a degree.
