Overview

Our degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences is a wonderful opportunity for first-class students with wide cultural, academic and professional interests to turn curiosity and creativity into the ability to analyse and contextualise, to communicate and lead.

Students choose a primary group (Arts, Social Science or Natural and Life Science) which remains the same throughout their degree. A different secondary group is also chosen, which may be changed every semester.

Each semester two modules are taken from the primary group and one from the secondary, in addition to a compulsory Liberal Arts and Sciences module exploring research, interdisciplinary and professional skills.

Alternatively, these three groups are subdivided into seven disciplinary pathways which you can follow if you prefer a more structured approach to your studies.

This prestigious new programme demonstrates our commitment to a liberal education that gives you both academic and professional experiences. It involves in-depth research-based study set in a broad context of interdisciplinary knowledge, underpinned by Surrey’s unique approach to personal and professional development.‬‬

‭We have built this degree around our pioneering expertise in personal development and Professional Training to form a programme for gifted, ambitious students that is quite unlike any other in the country. ‬‬‬‬‬

We will develop your ability to look at important issues in their proper context and – on the basis of evidence, insight and reason – to make informed links between different academic disciplines and modes of thought.

‭Most importantly, you will be equipped with the skills and capabilities to engage with new situations. Our degree prepares you to face ever-changing professional environments and the new challenges they will bring, thus giving you an edge over graduates with a less ample suite of attributes.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Career opportunities

Our Liberal Arts and Sciences degree is specifically geared to provide a platform of skills, attributes and experiences that will allow you to move into a variety of professional environments, especially those where the ability to analyse problems and offer solutions from a number of disciplinary viewpoints is required.

More importantly, you will be equipped with the skills and capabilities to engage with new situations throughout your life. Our degree prepares you to face ever-changing professional environments and the new challenges they will bring, thus giving you an edge over graduates with a less ample suite of attributes.
