Course summary

Our rich and challenging MLibArts Liberal Arts allows you to explore the arts and humanities while building crucial skills in analysis and communication, which will be valuable to you throughout your degree and beyond. Like our BA Liberal Arts, this course encourages you to explore a wide range of subjects and issues across the arts and humanities. The first two years of the MLibArts course are identical to the BA, with core interdisciplinary units, a language unit, a unit in which you learn to work with data, and optional units, which you can take from the disciplines offered by the Faculty of Arts. You will also begin to develop expertise in your specialist subject pathway, which you can choose from one of the disciplines in the faculty. A special feature of the MLibArts is the opportunity to spend your third year studying abroad at one of our prestigious partner universities. Visit Global Opportunities ( to find out more. If you are interested in the modern languages pathway, we encourage you to enrol on the MLibArts course. Your year abroad will accelerate your language skills and provides an invaluable opportunity to develop your cultural knowledge. However, if you are unable to go abroad, the three-year BA Liberal Arts with a modern languages pathway remains available. The fourth year includes an interdisciplinary dissertation, units in your subject pathway and optional units chosen from disciplines across the faculty. Please note that the English, French and Music pathways are available only to students who hold an A-level or equivalent qualification in that subject. In order to follow a language pathway you must hold an A-level or equivalent qualification in any ancient or modern language.
