Liberal Arts modules for external students

Welcome to the Liberal Arts Department!

We're really happy to welcome students from across the University into our modules. Our style might be a little different from what you're used to: our classes are all problem-based and student-led. No lectures here! You'll have a lot of responsibility, but you'll also have a lot of freedom to explore, discuss, and learn in a unique way. All our modules are transdisciplinary, meaning they draw on a range of disciplinary and professional perspectives. Our assessments vary a lot too, but they're all designed to support a range of learning opportunities and skills development.

We're continually updating our modules to reflect the latest research and expertise within our Department. Please note, our module web pages listed below currently reflect content for the 2020-21 academic year.
