Hello all, I am currently doing a foundation diploma in art and design, which I am really enjoying, but I would like to apply for a degree that is both creative and/or also more 'academic' as I still want to learn about human nature, culture and society. Has anyone else had the same struggle? my dream degree would be a social sciences (social anthropology, sociology, social psychology, politics, philosophy etc) and also visual arts (film, photography, fine art-painting-creating etc etc). but there isn't really a degree that broad. any advice would be GREATLY appreciated as I don't have much time till the deadline eek

Liberal arts are actually good its literally a degree for everything. You'll learn so many different subjects and you can tailor it to your personal tastes.

Its useful degree - you study a combo of subjects, and importantly, the connections between those subjects.
And you often get a Year Abroad.

The course structure is different at each Uni but here are some suggestions to look at :

Manchester : https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/u...ses/2021/17859
Sussex : https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/under...iberal-arts-ba

Combined Honours / Flexible Honours

Most (all afaik) liberal arts degrees don’t include an option for visual/creative arts. The closest you can get in most cases is art history/film studies
