BALiberal Arts in Humanities

Tuition fee €1,500.00 per semester
Application fee €80.00 one-time
More information 


The term Liberal Arts denotes a study programme that provides general knowledge and develops
intellectual abilities and critical thinking.

Tallinn University School of Humanities 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.

During the 3-year programme the BA student is expected to participate in a number of compulsory and elective courses. The studies are organised so that the Liberal Arts student will be studying closely together with other Tallinn University students, including Erasmus students. This should promote excellent opportunities for the exchange of ideas.

The bachelor programme in Liberal Arts has a highly interdisciplinary programme. You will learn
to combine approaches from a variety of disciplines.

There are courses that help to deepen the understanding of the Humanities, and students will have to engage in practical activities. Students can also improve their language skills and acquire at least a modest level of Estonian language. From the second year of studies, students choose two modules to specialise in out of the following: Anthropology; Asian Studies; Cultural
Studies of English- Speaking Countries; Comparative Cultural Analysis; Estonian Studies; History.

In addition to two modules of specialization, you are free to choose general subjects and electives
according to your interests and ambitions.
