University of Roehampton

Our BA Liberal Arts allows you to create your own degree programme from a wide range of options in Humanities, Social Sciences and Arts that cover six major themes:

This structure balances breadth and depth, and offers flexibility while ensuring you develop research expertise in your own area of interest. In years 2 and 3, students opt for a curriculum that is unique to them by choosing optional modules from two or more of the six pathways above. We’ll work with you to help you build a course that reflects what matters to you.

The programme will equip Roehampton's Liberal Arts graduates with an impressive toolkit of worldliness, knowledge and skills that will be attractive to employers, and offer excellent career prospects.

On this degree you will have access to many opportunities for work experience through our Careers Team, and access to face-to-face and 24/7 online careers support, whether you choose to live on campus or commute to us. The course also offers the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost your CV even further.

Roehampton was ranked as the best modern university in London (Times Good University Guide 2022 and Complete University Guide 2022), and you will be taught by a team of world-class scholars. We foster a supportive environment built on strong student-staff relationships and an environment that helps you to thrive.
