Human, Social, and Political Sciences - HSPS Tripos


Track Options

In the second and third year (Part II), students choose to specialise in a single or joint track within the HSPS Tripos. Single tracks allow students to dig into one subject and choose from a wide range of papers in that discipline. Joint tracks allow students to pursue multiple interests and continue to study at multiple departments.
