Liberal Arts (Foundation Entry) - University of Central Lancashire

Liberal Arts is firmly established in the US and an increasingly popular choice at British universities. Students select from a wide range of Humanities and Social Science options (including literature and cultural studies, history, sociology, film and media studies, linguistics, politics and philosophy) and tailor their studies to their own interests and academic strengths. The course permits some specialisation (students may concentrate in one subject for up to 50% of their studies), but it does not require specialisation (your studies will be made up from up to six different disciplines). You will also have the opportunity to: 1.Study a modern European language at beginner, intermediate and advanced level 2.Add a year abroad, for additional breadth and experience 3.Develop professional skills and work experience through modules from our Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership, with accreditation from the ILM The study of Liberal Arts confers a number of employability benefits. As with many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, the course is not directly vocational. However, this lack of a specific career focus confers a degree of flexibility that more vocational programmes cannot match. In a rapidly-changing economic and work environment role-specific education and training rapidly become obsolete. Learning how to learn, and learning to look beyond the immediate means/ends decision-making that is tied to established operational, technological and managerial contexts, are among the most vital features of degree-level study. As many employers are increasingly realising, the study of Liberal Arts develops precisely these abilities.
