Introduction to Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts is one of the oldest areas of study in the world, encompassing areas of social sciences (history, law, economics), life sciences (chemistry, physics, geology) and humanities (art, linguistics, ethics). Liberal Arts degrees are often interdisciplinary and many offer you the chance to plot your own avenues of study. There is a freedom in Liberal Arts which is not found in other degree programmes and this can lead to a wide variety of possible career paths.

Careers in Liberal Arts

A Liberal Arts degree will prepare you for work in a wide variety of sectors due to the depth of knowledge you acquire across a range of subjects. Graduates can expect to find positions in teaching, publishing, marketing, international relations, government, media, law and many more.
