College of Arts - Information for Current Students
Welcome to the College of Arts! Dating back to the foundation of the University in 1451, the College of Arts builds on more than 550 years of experience of producing graduates excellently equipped with a range of creative and critical competencies. The variety of choice on offer is reflected in the diverse career paths graduates embark upon, from actors to archaeologists, musicians to managers, and playwrights to presenters, to name just a few.
The Arts degree programmes offer you unique opportunities with flexibility to follow your own interests and select your degree programme from among the many and varied options within the College of Arts and also from a range of courses offered by other Colleges. There are also exciting opportunities to study abroad, either as part of a degree in Modern Languages or through established exchange programmes. So whether your interests lie in Archaeology, Theatre Studies or Scottish Literature, or whether you'd like to begin a new language along with your Philosophy or study some Classical Civilisation with your Film and TV Studies, there will be something to whet the appetite.
