Course summary

Our BA Liberal Arts explores the central question of what is it to be human. This broad based degree programme gives you the freedom to study the arts, philosophy, ecology, history, politics, sociology, media and much more. Roehampton's BA Liberal Arts provides the opportunity to study topics as diverse as the environment, creativity, social justice, well-being, and AI. Covering exciting new topics in the Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences and Anthropology, it also provides the opportunity for a one-year paid work placement. Roehampton's Liberal Arts students will graduate from Roehampton with an impressive toolkit of worldliness, knowledge and skills that will be attractive to employers and offer excellent career prospects. A spine of engaging modules runs through the degree, exploring key topics such as critical thinking, being human and multicultural London. For these topics, students will meet to discuss new trends, to debate and to problem-solve. The vast and exciting range of optional modules have been grouped into four pathways, with the freedom for you to choose what interests you, or matches your career goals:

  • Sociology and Diversity pathway
  • Philosophy and Beliefs pathway
  • Politics and the Environment pathway
  • Media and Creative Writing pathway
Students can choose all their optional modules from one of the pathways, but we expect many students to opt for modules from two or more of the pathways, and to follow a curriculum that's unique to them. Taught on our south-west London campus, on this degree you will have access to many opportunities for work experience through our Careers Team, and access to face-to-face and 24/7 online careers support, whether you choose to live on campus or commute to us. This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of your course, and then return to complete your degree. A placement year is the perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, to build on the career skills we will teach you on this degree. The connections you make on the placement will improve your career prospects further, and equip you with the skills you need to secure graduate-level employment. We are ranked as the best modern university in London (Times Good University Guide 2022 and Complete University Guide 2022).
