Degrees at Streatham Campus, Exeter

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.

I knew I wanted to study subjects to do with humanities but didn’t want to be limited by a normal BA degree. I have been able to do lots of different modules before I zoned in on a major.

The diversity of my Liberal Arts degree means that I have met a lot of students and I’ve had various lecturers in the departments of English, Sociology, Criminology, French and many more.

Evidently the teaching at Exeter is phenomenal because I have decided to do a postgraduate Masters after my degree. 

I would highly recommend choosing the University of Exeter, it is by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
