Liberal Arts (Including Foundation Year and Year Abroad) - University of Essex

On our five-year BA Liberal Arts (including foundation year), we work with you to develop your subject-specific knowledge, and to improve your academic skills. You receive a thorough grounding in these areas during your foundation year (known as Year Zero) to prepare you for a further four years of undergraduate study, with your fourth year spent studying abroad. During your Year Zero, you study three academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module. Our BA Liberal Arts course is for you if you love studying a variety of subjects, and want to maintain this breadth of knowledge at university. With the opportunity to major in History, Literature, Art History, Philosophy, Politics or Sociology, you broad your horizons by exploring the ways in which the humanities and social sciences help us to think imaginatively and critically about the worlds we live in.
