BA Liberal Arts
Our rich and challenging liberal arts programme allows you to explore the arts and humanities while building crucial skills in analysis and communication that will be valuable to you throughout your degree and beyond.
In years one and two you take a combination of bespoke core units exploring foundational issues in the arts and a choice of optional units from the full range of disciplines offered in the Faculty of Arts.
You also take a numeracy and a language unit during the first two years, as well as embarking on your specialist subject pathway. At least a quarter of your studies is devoted to your subject pathway, which you will be able to choose from one of the disciplines in the Faculty of Arts.
The final year includes a dissertation and a unit that provides opportunities for working with organisations outside the University.
