Why study Liberal Arts at Warwick?

  • 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 – the Certificate of Digital Literacy and Certificate of Coaching – as part of your degree that will help to enhance your employability.
  • 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.
