Bachelor of Arts (BA)

School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences

The world today needs sharp minds, critical thinkers, and leaders who can leverage new opportunities and inspire positive social change. Our Bachelor in Arts (BA) programme will help students interpret and experience the world around them. Invaluable skills like communication, critical thinking and problem solving are the core of this programme. Our undergraduate programme aims to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and intellectual foundation - across humanities and social sciences - for a competitive advantage and enduring career success. In the first year of the BA programme, students are introduced to carefully crafted interdisciplinary courses on the liberal arts and social sciences. Students can choose their areas of specialisation in the following year.

SLASS students also have access to robust supports including Workshops, Seminars and learning centres for assistance with language and skill and competency development. Our faculty mentors offer full-time support to each student throughout his or her academic journey at SRMAP.

At SLASS, we believe that a liberal arts and social sciences education offers door-opening experiences, career flexibility, and opportunities for students to achieve a brighter future for themselves, their communities, and the world at large. Therefore, we challenge students to set and achieve ambitious goals for themselves, and our graduates emerge from our programmes as sharper communicators, researchers, problem solvers, and leaders equipped with the very skills that today’s employers demand.
