If you’re creative and curious with an interest in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the BA in Liberal Arts could be what you’re looking for. A highly regarded degree subject with a long-standing tradition, BA Liberal Arts gives you the freedom to craft a programme of study that is tailored around your interests and career aspirations. You can also apply to add a placement year or a year abroad to your degree, increasing the course from three years to four.


This course appeals to highly qualified, self-motivated and independent-minded students who are seeking to make creative connections between their subjects. A multidisciplinary qualification that sits outside of traditional boundaries, the course offers exceptional flexibility and the opportunity to learn in some of the UK’s most prestigious Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Departments.


You can choose to focus on two subjects at a deeper level or spread your learning across a wider range of subjects. You will explore a diverse selection of contemporary worldwide issues which will develop your intellectual and critical skills. As such, you will be well placed to take up careers in fields as diverse as law, teaching, publishing and the financial services.


Liberal Arts graduates are highly employable. Employers recognise the value of a degree from a university with an international reputation for academic excellence, and of the wide range of skills which our students develop through their extensive involvement in sport, theatre, music, community service and many other activities in their colleges and across the University. Graduates of multidisciplinary programmes are especially attractive to employers because of the range of their intellectual skills, their adaptability, their capacity to make creative connections and their independence of mind.
