Arts and Sciences programmes

The BASc Arts and Sciences undergraduate honours degrees launched in 2012 and are at the forefront of the new wave of liberal arts and sciences degrees in the UK. The degree gives you the opportunity to create your own bespoke programme incorporating both arts and sciences subjects and study innovative Core modules to enhance the link between disciplines. You will study modules across the breadth of UCL's world class expertise and achieve a depth of knowledge needed to thrive in our global society. Our first cohort graduated in 2015 and have moved into a wide range of interesting and exciting postgraduate study and graduate employment opportunities.

The MASc in Creative Health will begin in September 2021 and is the first of its kind in the world, both in terms of the qualification (Masters in Arts & Sciences) and the academic field of study (Creative Health). It will create a new generation of socially engaged scholars and practitioners to meet the needs of a changing health, social care and voluntary third sector, where personalised care, social prescribing, health equity and the patient experience are mainstreamed into public health.

BASc Arts and Sciences

The BASc Arts and Sciences programmes allow you to create a bespoke programme of arts, social sciences and science specialisms that reflect your academic interests. You will choose a major and minor pathway and focus on the subjects that interest you most. You will also take Core courses which encourage interdisciplinary thinking and equip you with a range of qualititative and quantitative skills that can be applied to your disciplinary interests and future interests.

MASc in Creative Health

The MASc in Creative Health programme addresses a growing interest in the fields of Arts and Health and social prescribing, with a focus on research-led practice, community engagement, non-clinical approaches to health and wellbeing, and experiential teaching. Taught modules will provide the necessary grounding for you to understand the scope of research, policy and practice across these diverse areas and a research dissertation undertaken with a community partner will provide practical experience of the role of community organisations in supporting different aspects of health and wellbeing.

"The skills and knowledge I have developed gave me the confidence, as well as the opportunity, to undertake an fast-paced internship in the centre of London with real responsibility. Outside an educational context you realise the invaluable skills that Arts and Sciences teaches you: proactivity, teamwork, determination, leadership, preservation, motivation, confidence. The internship helps to strengthen these skills and puts you in a position to leave UCL and enter the job market with confidence, an enviable position to be in." Alex, Cultures major and 2015 graduate.
