Congratulations and Welcome to Liberal Arts

Welcome to Liberal Arts!

Bringing together Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Business, our innovative degree programme allows you to pursue your unique interests across multiple subjects, culminating in an independent research project in your final year. Along the way, we also offer many enticing opportunities for work placements and study abroad. We look forward to meeting you soon and to helping you chart your course through the world-class opportunities available here at Durham! A man in front of some book shelves

Welcome to the Liberal Arts programme. As course reps and members of the Liberal Arts Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC), we meet to discuss matters relating to the programme. It is a rewarding opportunity to be involved in discussion and development of the programme by gathering student feedback and presenting it to the committee. If you are interested in becoming a course rep, further details can be found on the Durham Student Union website.

Your first week in Durham – University Induction Week Events Timetable

The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.

To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do during your first busy days at university, in your College and your Department, we have created a day-by-day University Induction Planner. This should help you to plan your schedule, so you don't miss anything - from being issued with your Campus Card or meeting the staff in your Department, to trying out for a sports team or joining a student society.
