Liberal Arts/Humanities (BA)
The BA in the Liberal Arts is a course designed to offer those students with a general interest in the Humanities a broad-based program of study, that engages with a full breadth of Humanities subjects and disciplines rather than specialising in just one subject area.
The first two years of the degree program are constituted by an innovative education model: two years of 'Basic Studies', which is a broad introduction to Humanities comprising modules from across the various Schools within the Faculty.
In these two years the student makes important choices about the course content to follow: through the choice of courses from the four strands of historical inquiry, cultural engagement, practical humanities and the human mind, the students decide to an extent on which areas of Humanities they wish to focus.
From the start you obtain a broad understanding of the Humanities, from which you gradually sharpen your profile into a specialisation in your third year. In the third year, two strands of study are chosen.
It is those two specialised strands that are studied in depth and form your Bachelor's degree. This gives students the possibility of a unique interdisciplinary study in the Humanities, creating the best correlation with the student’s professional interests and future job possibilities. Each student is free to choose the two strands which will comprise their Bachelor's degree.
Grades are important; however, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to their chosen subject area and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.
To assess student suitability for their chosen course we normally arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications.
