Course summary

The BA Liberal Arts degree offers you a unique multi-disciplinary education at central London’s only campus-based university, situated in one of London’s most diverse and dynamic areas. The programme combines an innovative and research-driven curriculum grounded within the distinct, established areas of academic specialisation and excellence found within the constituent schools of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The programme is organised around Liberal Arts compulsory modules and seminars in the first and second years, and culminates in a unique research project drawing on expert supervision: for those that do not meet the entrance criteria, a foundation year, year 0, is available, prior to the first developmental year. The programme provides distinct tracks or ‘majors’ that facilitate greater flexibility in module choice and a broader basis than in degrees in single or joint subjects, alongside the development of an intellectual and disciplinary focus as you progress through your degree. You will benefit from engaging with a range of subjects from different disciplinary perspectives, including the study of a foreign language during your first year (whether as a beginner or building on existing competence) this is the second year for those who take the foundation year. As well as practical language study, covering the productive skills of speaking and writing as well as the receptive skills of listening and reading, you will work on related aspects of literature, culture, history, society and linguistics, both through a compulsory interdisciplinary module which is closely aligned to the language programme and through option modules in any of these areas.
