Liberal Arts at Warwick is a way of approaching what matters most to you through a rigorous and flexible degree. As part of a close-knit community, you will draw on knowledge from a range of disciplines to address complex problems in hands-on seminars. You will design your own degree by choosing a route or a pathway, closely supported by our expert tutors.
Important information: We have made some exciting changes to our BA Liberal Arts degree for 2023 entry. We are currently in the process of updating our department website to reflect these changes.
Our unique course balances both breadth and depth. It gives you the critical tools to think across disciplines, flexibility with your module choices, and specific expertise in your area of interest.
A Liberal Arts education puts critical thinking and innovative problem solving at the heart of learning. It is based on a long tradition of thinking across different disciplines to solve the most pressing challenges of the day and of the human experience.
If you want to spend a year studying in another country we can empower you to study abroad at a leading university. We have partnered with Liberal Arts programmes in Europe and Canada that share our passion for interdisciplinarity and critical thinking.
