Students will benefit from our cross-disciplinary philosophy studying this distinctive Liberal Arts course. This programme allows you to construct a postgraduate course around your particular interests, and to sample several different academic fields, before settling on a personal focus in an extended dissertation/ research project.
Curating your own curriculum is central to the course. You will be guided in choosing your route through the programme through discussion with tutors.
Through your own unique programme you will understand and address complex world issues, by bringing knowledge from the arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences, into critical conversation, whilst learning how to listen to your own intellectual instincts and curiosities.
