Our Liberal Arts programme is an innovative, challenging and interdisciplinary programme, specifically designed to develop your intellectual capabilities and critical skills. It offers flexibility and breadth, complemented by in-depth learning in your chosen field of specialisation – your Major.

Alongside your Major you will have the freedom to explore, choosing modules from across humanities, the social sciences and business. You will also develop or extend your language skills and gain a global perspective through addressing contemporary worldwide issues.

Through our Liberal Arts core modules you will develop confidence applying a range of approaches and methodologies. You will also work directly with employers and external organisations, researching real-life problems through our innovative Think Tank module.

With options to gain work experience as part of your degree programme, you can further develop your employability potential.

Our programme is aimed at ambitious and versatile students with interests across the humanities, social sciences and business. Not limited by traditional discipline boundaries, you will enjoy the prospect of taking control of your studies whilst still being supported by a structured programme.

As a Liberal Arts study I am living the best of both worlds. I have access to most subjects from the Humanities college, the Business School as well as some social sciences.

This wide range of subjects allows me to not only be able to build a degree tailored specifically to my interest, but I have never once been bored in any module I have taken! I enjoy the freedom of choice in the subjects that are offered, the interest and close attention that the members of the Liberal Arts faculty have for any of my questions or concerns, and the knowledge I have gain from switching subjects so often. In addition to this, because I am taught by lectures from different faculties, I have had the luck to experience many different ways of teaching.
