Liberal Arts with Social Science Foundation Year

Keele University

UCAS Course code Y007


At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

The Social Science Foundation Year seeks to address difficult questions such as who holds power, why does conflict occur and how can we understand the changing nature of an increasingly globalised society? You will take a core of modules which provides a broad introduction to the social sciences and also teach the key academic skills needed for successful degree level study. On completion of your Social Science Foundation Year you will progress to undertake your three year Liberal Arts degree.

Liberal Arts is ideal if you're a creative thinker, enjoy exploring new and varied subjects and want to make a difference in society. Its interdisciplinary approach to some of the world's most pressing problems means you'll study a wide range of subjects, including the social sciences, arts, humanities and natural sciences. Much of the programme is underpinned by innovative teaching . For example, the programme uses a 'living labs' approach, by which field trips engage students with local issues and their potential solutions. Students can pursue hands-on research into Britain's industrial history and current/future-oriented issues of economic regeneration, social challenges and environmental sustainability, citizenship and creativity with opportunities for learning analytical, presentational, writing and research skills.
