Global Liberal Arts Undergraduate Study

The BA in Global Liberal Arts at SOAS is for ambitious, intellectually curious students who don’t want to be tied down to traditional single disciplines. It’s a carefully structured inter-disciplinary programme which allows you to explore a range of subjects from arts and humanities to languages and social sciences.

It will give you a sophisticated understanding of the world as a whole, expert knowledge of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and the skills you need to succeed in your future career. Each year you will take a module from four different tracks.

Skills and methods modules teach critical thinking, project design, and research methods. The global track considers the world as a whole, from particular disciplinary perspectives. The regional track allows you to focus on particular parts of the world, which the fourth track complements with the study of a language.

The BA in Global Liberal Arts will give you the perspective, in-depth knowledge, and critical skills that are so highly valued by a wide range of blue chip employers in the public, private and 3 rd sectors.
