Manylion Cwrs

The Liberal Arts programme at Aberystwyth offers students an opportunity to develop their own interests in the Arts and Humanities, to combine areas of study that are not available to students on traditional single-honours courses, while developing in depth understanding of their major. Students elect a major from a broad choice of themes (exploring the past, literary cultures, visual cultures, theatre and performance, languages, or media cultures), and to be taught by staff from a number of departments, including English, History, Modern Languages, Welsh, Art, Theatre, Film & Television Studies.


As Liberal Arts graduate, you could pursue careers in many different areas including including business and commerce, law, teaching and academia, journalism and the media, culture and heritage, the civil and uniformed services. This course also provides an excellent foundation for postgraduate study.

Addysg a Dysgu

What will I learn?

  • Year 1 – as well as choosing modules from a range of different disciplines, you will take two specially-designed core modules. These will help you develop your critical thinking across traditional subject boundaries and explore broad questions from a number of perspectives. 
  • Year 2 – at this stage in your studies you will elect a ‘major’ from a choice of six thematic areas and also take modules from a broad range of disciplines to supplement your learning. The thematic areas are: ‘Exploring the Past’, ‘Languages’, ‘Literary Cultures’, ‘Media Cultures’, ‘Theatre & Performance’ and ‘Visual Cultures’.
  • Year 3 – at this stage you will receive research training (in the first semester) and write a dissertation (with regular sessions of individual tutorial guidance) during the second semester on a topic covering a chosen aspect of your ‘major’ area.
  • Year 4, the core element is the ‘PRO’, the Presented Reflective Overview, which is an individual account of the student’s personal Liberal-Arts ‘journey’ over the four years of the degree. Training for the PRO is given in the linked ‘PRO-PREP’ component in Semester 1. As a focal point for their lecture-style presentation to tutors and peers, students will be advised to make some use of an illustrative ‘case study’ related to an aspect of their work earlier in the course. The presentation is followed by an interactive questions-and-responses session. An augmented and annotated written follow-up is submitted one month after the presentations. In this final year students also take 2 modules from their major area and 2 from elsewhere.

How will I be taught?

The course will be delivered through a balanced programme of lectures, workshops, tutorials, and seminars. Students have access to a range of online resources including e-books and journals, and other learning support through Blackboard, our online learning portal.

You will be assessed through numerous methods including essays, oral presentations, portfolios, reflective journals, literature reviews, and exams.

Students will be strongly encouraged to undertake original archival research during their degree, and at Aberystwyth we are fortunate to have the National Library of Wales, and National Screen and Sound Archive just next to the main campus, both of which house a huge array of archival material.
