A liberal arts degree gives you the freedom to focus on the subjects that most interest you. You’ll concentrate on a major area of study while maintaining a breadth of learning spanning the arts, humanities and social sciences.
Liberal Arts with Integrated Foundation incorporates an extra year of study to prepare you for your undergraduate degree. Once you have completed the foundation year, you will progress directly on to the three-year BA (Hons) Liberal Arts (Psychology) degree.
