Best Part time Master of Art Degrees in General Studies 2017/2018. The Liberal Arts (Latin liberalis, free, and ars, art or principled practice) can claim to be the oldest programme of higher education in Western history. In medieval culture this became formalised as the trivium, with the quadrivium of arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy. Essentially, these seven subjects laid out the uniform laws of what could be known and achieved in the natural universe. These broad areas of enquiry are better known now as philosophy, the humanities, social science, natural science, and the fine arts. This programme offers the possibility to explore ideas across the wide range of these intellectual areas. Students decide the content of their studies through discussion with tutor(s) working within the broad range of intellectual areas which constitute Modern Liberal Arts. Modules Students arrive at essay topics through negotiation with tutors, as there are no taught modules on this programme. Topics include: Ancient, Medieval, and Modern Philosophies Renaissance Humanism Modern Social and Political Thought Utopia and Tragedy The Holocaust Religion Philosophy and Music Aesthetics Psychoanalysis Sociology Philosophies of Higher Education Education Ecology Race Gender Women's History [-]
