An American heritage

Regent’s is surely the best place to study the liberal arts in the UK, if not Europe. With over 20 years’ experience of offering American higher education in the UK, we were one of the first universities to offer a British liberal studies degree. All our modules have been specially designed for the programme, offering choices in subjects as diverse as film studies, applied ethics and political science, to create a highly personal programme that matches your passions and interests.

A training for life

The liberal arts approach develops adaptable, resourceful, open-minded students who are trained as tomorrow’s global leaders. It is not simply about the intellectual and practical skills you acquire, but about your personal and professional development as an individual. From a multidisciplinary base, you choose from a range of majors, in areas such as art history, business and psychology, so you can focus your interest on a particular field. As you do this, the liberal arts ethos challenges you to think independently, to make connections across disciplines, to question conventional wisdom and pursue your own ideas and inspiration.

London as your classroom

Our central London location puts the amazing cultural and historical resources of this great city right on your doorstep. Studying at the heart of this vibrant global hub offers new perspectives and unparalleled opportunities to bring what you are learning to life, making the city itself an extension of the classroom. A global perspective is central to the liberal arts, and our internationally diverse classrooms encourage thought-provoking debates from a variety of viewpoints and approaches. The London location and highly cosmopolitan community at Regent’s ensures that you graduate with the inter-cultural understanding and network of contacts to sustain you far into the future.
