Liberal Arts is a highly interdisciplinary course that allows you to complement your major subject with modules from a wide range of areas. To give your studies focus, we've organised these modules into four multi-disciplinary topic areas according to the issues and themes they explore.  

You'll choose three topics in your first year, two in your second year, and one in your third year — exploring your interests in greater depth as you progress through your studies. You can choose topic modules from the same areas, or different areas depending on your interests. 

The topic areas are: 

  • Creativity and Change 
  • Global Citizenship and Communication (which includes a selection of language modules in year one and two) 
  • Disruption and Social Transformation 
  • Visions of the Past, Present and Future
