Subject

Liberal arts

Today's world is complex. To solve its problems depends on a range of knowledge and skills. No one has it all, but the better you can communicate yours, and recognise the value of others', the more you'll succeed.

Liberal Arts allows you to:

- follow your passions

- explore new areas

- develop the skills to lead, manage and change society

**Subject choice**

Choose modules for 18 different subject areas covering:

- arts

- humanities

- languages and cultures

- social sciences

- politics

- maths

There are no defined pathways. We'll support you to build a coherent programme that meets your needs.

**Core modules**

Our core modules develop your interdisciplinary knowledge and skills:

- team working

- exposure to subjects beyond your own

- communicating to people who know little about your specialisms

- connecting information and combining methods

**Community**

You'll be part of a distinct Liberal Arts community:

- work together thorough group and project work and field trips

- share experiences as part of the Liberal Arts Society

At the same time join in with:

- your subject-specific societies

- wider university life

- the dynamic city of Nottingham

Modules

Liberal arts degrees are interdisciplinary, combining modules from a range of disciplines. In addition to studying the core aspects of Liberal Arts, including the challenges of cross-disciplinary study from a global perspective, you can explore specialist areas through a choice of pathways. Typically, you will select two or three subject pathways which allows for the development of existing subject knowledge as well as starting something new. The combination of subjects you study in year one allows you to find out what each subject is like at university, gradually specialising as you progress through the course.
