Liberal Studies

'Concetto', Oct 1966'Concetto', Oct 1966One of the first innovations at the newly designated Chelsea College of Science and Technology was the establishment of the Department of Liberal Studies.

From 1957, all students reading for diplomas in technology were required to also undertake studies which broadened their outlook on life and provided experience across a range of disciplines, rather than just scientific, specialist education.

Liberal Studies emphasised the use of thought and imagination, with courses in Arts and Music, History and Philosophy of Science, Human Relations and Modern Languages, and were responsible for a number of developments at the College during subsequent years.

Providing a link between arts and technology led, for example, to the establishment of a film unit, which in the early 1960’s shot and edited several small pieces, including a College newsreel and two Art school scripts.
