    I'm an American who has been given an unconditional offer to study liberal arts at Kings College London. I would specifically love to focus on philosophy and film studies courses (I know I can only pick one). I was drawn to the program because American schools offer different subjects to study before a major is chosen. Has anyone here gone through the course at Kings or elsewhere? Also, will going through liberal arts result in me receiving a BA in liberal arts? Or in my selected major? It seems as if liberal arts isn't quite as respected, and has lower requirements than some other sections, but it looks like a great option

    You can check with your uni what your actual degree will say. I suspect it will be what your honours is in i.e your 'major'. It's a fairly new concept so there aren't many unis doing it.

    I didn't. I chose to attend St. Andrews, Kings was just too urban for me
