Course summary

Our prestigious undergraduate Liberal Arts and Sciences degree course is designed for talented students who want to study a variety of subjects at degree level.

Each student creates their own unique programme which combines arts and/or sciences and/or social sciences. You will typically centre your studies at University around one subject, your Major, which will serve as your specialism. This is then complemented with a variety of different subjects to give you an original portfolio of expertise.

Our exciting four-year degree programmes offer a rich extra-curricular experience to make you stand out in a competitive graduate market. Our Cultural Programme will expand your education beyond the lecture hall or seminar room and into new and exciting spaces to give you new experiences. You will broaden your global potential through our Year Abroad, which will allow you to spend the third year of your degree course studying at one of a choice of over 250 institutions. In addition, we have offered a broad suite of other interdisciplinary experiences such as trips to the Lake District, Brussels, Romania, Rome, and now a Summer School.

Employability

A Liberal Arts and Sciences degree will set you apart in a competitive job market.

Throughout the programme, our students develop skills in academic resilience, initiative, and intellectual independence. Liberal Arts and Sciences graduates have the ability to research and analyse complex information, work independently and as part of a team, and create compelling solutions to problems.

Supported by the University's Careers Network team, you will be encouraged to acquire and develop your skills for the jobs of tomorrow. Throughout the course of your degree, you will develop a range of abilities from communication to research, analysis to leadership which will equip you to succeed.

Many graduates find employment in areas far removed from their primary area of study at University – or are likely to change careers several times in their lives, sometimes engaging in a wider range of jobs with the same employer. Our Liberal Arts and Sciences programme recognises this phenomenon and is designed to meet the growing demand from leading employers in the UK and internationally, for a new breed of dynamic business, public service, and political leaders.
