Liberal Arts in Humanities

"[T]echnology alone is not enough—
it’s technology married with liberal arts,
married with the humanities,
that yields us the results that make our heart sing." 
Steve Jobs, 2011

Are you interested in humanities, languages, culture, literature, history, anthropology, but cannot choose between these exciting disciplines? Then the programme of Liberal Arts in Humanities is just for you, allowing you to study all these together!

Our School of Humanities has excellent competences for making our Liberal Arts programme into an attractive study programme.

The school has competent teaching staff with expertise in the “classical” humanities disciplines, such as history, literature, philosophy, modern languages, etc. Moreover, our strength is that we can combine these with competences from, anthropology, English studies, Estonian studies, Asian studies, literary and cultural studies, and comparative cultural analysis.

The language of our programme is English, making it unique among other Liberal Arts programmes in the nearby region. An excellent Erasmus network permits students to enrich their degree by studying abroad. An ample amount of free electives permits students to create added value to their degree.

We are also proud to be “on the map”: our programme is part of the European Liberal Arts Initiative (ELAI)

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for students whose interests are not limited to one of the traditional discipline in humanities, but who are interested in combining several disciplines within the framework of our study programme. Good English skills are required, and curiosity, openness to different ways of thinking and desire to find out things for oneself make the experience with us even more worthwhile.

Why study with us?

Our Liberal Arts offers not only the usual skills like research or critical thinking. It permits to enhance these skills by combining various courses to get diverse views of poignant topics.

We promote independent thinking, teamwork and tolerance.
