A broad range of subjects to provide a coherent world view
The Chavagnes Liberal Arts degree comprises five main areas of study: Literature, History, Philosophy/Theology, Mathematics/Science and Latin/French.
The teaching of the degree programme will take the form of 20 hours per week of classes, conducted in a seminar format, supplemented by regular personal assignments and individual study. Additional individual tutoring will be available especially for those involved in the accelerated learning of French as a foreign language.
The academic year will be composed of four 10-week terms, on the model of accelerated BA courses at several UK universities such as the University of Buckingham.
