FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE LIBERAL ARTS: • Wide range of modules on relevant topics like the philosophy of mind, the history of genocide, or the literature of Western cultures. • Modules based on lecturers' distinctive research expertise. • Innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials. • Space for independent thinking and opportunities to pursue your own favourite topics and interests. • Chance to combine your studies with modules from other humanities subjects.
The BA in the Liberal Arts is a course designed to offer those students with a general interest in the Humanities a broad-based programme 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 programme 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.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following type of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
