MA (Hons) Liberal Arts
Our course represents the finest Scottish liberal arts tradition of extensive inquiry over a wide range of subjects and disciplines, challenging you to find creative solutions to problems through active learning.
We give you freedom throughout your entire degree to study several different subjects without the requirement to specialize in only one or two. However, you also have the freedom to focus on one subject (a major) if you want to, while also gaining insights from a wide range of other subjects all the way through your course.
Unlike many similar courses in the UK there is no requirement to take core or compulsory modules for this course, ensuring that you have the maximum flexibility to tailor your degree to your needs.
Choose from subjects across the range of MA disciplines in both the Humanities and Social Sciences, with the option of studying certain subjects from outside the MA structure as well.
The range of MA subjects available is vast and includes English, Creative Writing, Film Studies, European Languages, History, European Studies, Philosophy, Economics, Environmental Science, Environmental Sustainability, Geography, International Business, Politics & International Relations, Psychology, Town & Regional Planning, and Career Planning.
