Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

Liberal Arts at Keele is a new, exciting and innovative degree programme.
It offers you an all-round education, developing knowledge and skills from
a range of disciplines that are applied to local, regional and global issues. Liberal Arts is not like other degrees. Rather than focusing on one
academic discipline, a Liberal Arts degree concentrates on the
qualities that the student will have when they graduate. It offers a
unique opportunity to develop critical and creative skills through
study of a wide range of disciplines and approaches. The result
is a challenging and engaging programme that contributes to the
development of capable, and employable, citizen-graduates.

Liberal Arts is ideal if you’re a creative thinker, enjoy exploring new
and varied subjects and want to make a difference to society. Its
interdisciplinary approach to some of the world’s most pressing
problems means you’ll study a wide range of subjects, including
the social sciences, arts, humanities and natural sciences. Much of
the programme is underpinned by innovative teaching. For example,
the programme uses a ‘living labs’ approach, by which field trips
engage students with local issues and their potential solutions.
Students can pursue hands-on research into Britain’s industrial
history and current/future-oriented issues of economic regeneration,
social challenges and environmental sustainability, citizenship and
creativity with opportunities for learning analytical, presentational,
writing and research skills.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. When you graduate, you’ll have a wide range of transferable skills
including the ability to communicate effectively, think critically and
creatively, problem solve, and demonstrate empathy towards others in
local and global communities. These are all highly valued by employers,
and can lead to a range of career choices.

You might go into the arts, the culture and media industries, education,
advertising, marketing, tourism, leisure, local and national government,
humanitarian work, health and social care, or many other professions.
