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.
