Course summary

It is a multi-disciplinary subject covering the full range of business education with courses in economics, financial and management accounts, human resource management, marketing, statistics and operations research, information technology and business strategy and policy.

Course Content

This innovative degree offers students a combination of modules focusing on a chosen academic subject alongside other modules that make use of a wide range of disciplines to explore the human condition and our contemporary European context. This combination of focused study and broad development is a key feature of a Liberal Arts education. The learning programme seeks to develop the skills necessary to succeed in new and challenging situations. It also offers the opportunity to deepen one’s personal values and sense of responsibility towards the needs of society. The College therefore believes that a Liberal Arts degree offers students learning opportunities for both employability and fulfilment.

Teaching & Learning

On the BA (Liberal Arts) degree programme we do this by providing a range of learning experiences which enable our students to engage with subject and professional experts. Students are supported in developing attributes and perspectives that will equip them for life as professionals, while enhancing their development as independent, lifelong learners. The results of the National Student Survey have consistently shown that students rate the quality of teaching and learning in the College very highly. The College has recently completed an extensive refurbishment of the Student Centre, providing welcoming areas for students to meet and socialise. Additionally, the College has on its compact campus a modern, well-stocked library, an IT Open-Access Suite, dedicated workshop areas, a fitness suite and a specialist PE Centre. As St Mary’s students are also students of Queen’s University Belfast they have access to facilities at Queen’s, including the Students’ Union, libraries, IT facilities, Chaplaincy, Queen’s PEC and the Student Guidance Centre.
