About the course Studying Liberal Arts at UEA allows you to enjoy the prospect of taking control of your studies while still being supported by a course structure. This is an innovative and challenging programme aimed at ambitious and versatile students who do not want to be limited by traditional disciplinary boundaries. Our course is ideal if you wish to study more than one subject area while accessing greater flexibility than traditional joint degrees allow. Whichever subjects you choose, you will be learning at the forefront of your chosen disciplines with our exciting research-led programme. The course offers in-depth learning in your chosen field of specialisation, selected from subjects within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, which will constitute your major. This is then complemented by the study of other subjects alongside it, selected from within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the Faculty of Social Sciences, or the Faculty of Science, which will constitute your minor. You might choose your major from History of Art, Film and Television Studies, Media Studies, American Studies, History, English Literature, Drama, International Relations, Politics, Philosophy, or Modern Languages. You might choose your minor from one of those subjects, producing a unique combination of Arts and Humanities otherwise unavailable. Or you might think beyond those subjects and pursue your minor in subjects such as Sociology, Mathematics, Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, or Computing Science. Your choice of subjects to study can produce some remarkable connections and insights! You might master writing and storytelling through the study of English Literature while gaining a competent grasp of Computing, equipping you for a host of digital careers. Or perhaps you’re motivated by the urgency of the Climate Crisis. Imagine combining the study of Philosophy – with a chance to explore our moral responsibility to the planet – with an understanding of Environmental Science. By choosing your own elective modules in each of the years of your BA Liberal Arts degree at UEA, your studies will be unique to you. You'll select modules from across different Schools, allowing you to sample different methodologies, approaches and theories throughout your degree.
