Changes in the global economy, increasing challenges in employment and new opportunities arising from technological innovation have made the Liberal Arts (Hons) degree from The University Of Nottingham Malaysia a valuable asset – one that is recognised by employers and governments across the world.


The core modules in this Liberal Arts (Hons) programme from The University Of Nottingham Malaysia equip students with relevant research skills in the Arts & Social Sciences. These are regarded as life-long learning skills, culminating in a Dissertation, which require students to apply these skills to develop a written project of 10,000 words in an area relevant to the field. 

The modules also include a business component that will enhance students’ employability; and a language component that offers students the opportunity to learn a chosen language from Beginners to Advanced level. This is also a crucial skill for employability and increases the ‘international’ portfolio of the student. The optional Arts & Social Sciences modules allow students to study from a range of disciplines to create an original academic portfolio in the areas of Education; English; Culture, Film & Media; and Politics, History & International Relations.


An international communications degree is your passport to a variety of rewarding professions. Likely career fields include: the audio-visual, digital and print media industries; marketing; production; public relations; and research.

Career paths in these fields include advertising account executives, copywriters and creative roles, news editors, journalists and reporters.
