- Liberal Arts education has a long history in Western civilisation. In its oldest form, it involved students thinking philosophically about questions that crossed the rigid boundaries of disciplines, and encouraged them to use critical tools from the humanities, the social and natural sciences, and fine arts to address these questions.
- It enables you to study a wide range of subjects and to create a pathway through the degree that reflects your individual intellectual interests, allowing for flexibility in module choices and innovation in subject specialism. You will become aware of how different disciplines coincide and converge and you will learn to address questions by deploying the most appropriate methodology and utilising the most relevant evidence.
- The course will appeal to you if you approach problems from the perspective of more than one discipline and enjoy thinking about the Big Questions that are facing our contemporary society and the world at large.
- Our course is constructed around Problem-Based-Learning (PBL), which involves learning about a subject through problem-solving. This practical style of learning will transform you from a passive receiver of knowledge into an active producer of ideas. You will work with your fellow students to examine real world problems from a variety of disciplinary perspectives; learning how to use a range of analytical tools to gather information and develop potential solutions.
- Our bespoke Liberal Arts Core Modules have been specifically developed for this degree and offer a solid grounding in a broad range of theories and methodologies, while our Disciplinary Interest/Specialist Interest Pathways allow you to develop expertise in a specific area of study. In addition, you can acquire professional awards as part of your degree that will help to enhance your employability: a Certificate of Digital Literacy, a Certificate of Coaching and a Certificate of Communication Across Cultures.
- Warwick offers a growing number of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary courses. This means our general approach to teaching correlates with the Liberal Arts strategy of delivering innovative teaching and learning that crosses traditional subject boundaries. The opportunity to study overseas or undertake a placement in a professional setting will further enhance your learning experience.
