Course summary

You explore a range of profound and important ideas and concepts, unrestricted by academic subject boundaries and underpinned by an integrated approach to the curriculum. You read and reflect on many of the most influential texts in the Western tradition, and beyond it, and discuss your own responses both in writing and orally. Study on the programme draws on classical and modern texts, as well as contemporary and popular culture, including film, music and art. In the first academic year, you are introduced to the Liberal Arts of ancient and medieval times, but complemented by modern themes and texts. You explore some of the most profound mysteries surrounding human existence and the science of the cosmos, and the question of freedom and its relation to enlightenment. In addition, you can choose to question the meaning of ‘higher’ education both present and past, to explore representations of the ‘fall’ in art and literature, to examine philosophy in cinematic film, to learn about the Renaissance, and to study tragedy in ancient culture. In the second academic year, there are two compulsory modules that deepen our understanding of freedom by reading some of the most influential texts and thinkers within social theory, philosophy, art and science from the last two and half thousand years of European culture and beyond. In addition, there are a number of optional modules that you can choose from according to your own interests. In the final academic year, you produce a dissertation on a subject of your choosing. The core modules undertake an adventure into some of the most profound questions concerning human existence and the idea of freedom. The optional modules look at many aspects of liberal arts education in detail, enabling you to pursue areas you are most interested in, including studies in the Holocaust, nature, the soul, religion(s), art, music, science, literature and education. All modules share a philosophical approach in exploring their issues and questions.
