As part of their PDM (Personal Decision-Making) lessons, the Upper 5th learn about issues which fall outside their normal curriculum study. On Monday 11th November, we welcomed James Everest from the Department of Liberal Arts at the University of Birmingham. James spoke to the girls about how a Liberal Arts degree looks at global issues from a variety of different perspectives. An interesting and very topical example he gave related to the way managing flooding will differ between an economist, an engineer and a geographer. Liberal Arts considers issues from a variety of perspectives and can combine up to 12 different disciplines. The girls worked through many scenarios, for example, combining the study of architecture with the study of psychology, leading to the ability to design spaces with psychology in mind. The talk was very engaging and, at the end of his lecture, the girls asked James many interesting questions.
