The General BA is flexible and provides students not only with a comprehensive general education in a setting known for its vibrancy, but also with the opportunity to take a range of courses in Arts specific fields (fine arts, humanities, languages and literatures) or in other faculties. Students can also complete a minor in a specific subject, such as a foreign language, art history, music, theatre, communication, history, geography, religious studies or linguistics.
The curriculum is geared to students looking for a broad education; it allows students to explore several disciplines before concentrating on one field later on.
