For the next coming weeks, we will have students from the Arts and Sciences (BASc) course taught at University College London (UCL) presenting their truly interdisciplinary work on our blog.
We launched this blog series as we feel that this unique programme is very much in line with the passion and ideals of us, AXNS. For this reason we want to offer a platform to increase awareness for the course that is unlike any other degree in the UK and get public exposure for the student’s innovative work. We are convinced that our network of artists, scientists, curators, technologists and funders that we could establish over the years will be a thankful, interested and inspired audience.
The UCL’s Liberal Arts course was first held in 2012 with the aim to graduate students with a breadth of knowledge, capable of working across the disciplines in our increasingly interconnected world. It allows to incorporate both arts and sciences specialisms. Students choose one of four pathways: Cultures, Health and Environment, Sciences and Engineering, Societies. Alongside the pathways, students study core courses that encourage to link traditional UCL subjects in new ways, and explore the conceptual and methodological differences between arts and sciences.
