Academics Student voices

Studying at the Faculty of Liberal Arts has constantly been about self-exploration. The interdisciplinary structure of the general courses allowed me to wander freely between subjects, and the engaging courses taught by accomplished professors enabled me to find that one subject and class I finally clicked with. This capacity for self-discovery is what I treasured above all else at the FLA. You will find here a diverse environment where students can learn to think critically and develop their own take of the world.
Students majoring in Social Studies are especially given the chance to merge theory with practice by doing fieldwork. In my case, examining the dynamics of social displacement through interviews with foreign individuals. Perhaps the most important thing I learned at the FLA is that some knowledge is only accessed by getting your hands dirty and applying yourself out there where it all happens.
