Join a vibrant community of teaching and research staff, graduate students and undergraduates as we explore the great questions of life, both ancient and contemporary. You’ll investigate profound philosophical questions, from value, ethics and aesthetics, the mind, God and the universe, to philosophy’s relationship to science, the arts and the environment. This course is ideal whether you have studied philosophy before or are coming to the subject fresh. Either way, you will have an independent mind and be ready to question everything. Perhaps you aspire to go on to work in politics, journalism, publishing, advertising, teaching or law. Equally you might plan to progress to postgraduate study and research. On this course, your ideas matter. You’ll not only gain in-depth knowledge of philosophical approaches and techniques of argumentation, you’ll also learn how to develop, communicate and defend your own ideas. Throughout the course you’ll also hone your analytical, critical and research skills. You will develop strong problem-solving abilities, learn how to present rigorous arguments, and become confident in discussing difficult ethical issues and existential questions. Philosophy thrives on discussion. That is why, you will learn through lectures and your own study, and by debating issues with your lecturers in seminars. You’ll bring your questioning approach and inquisitive perspective, forming your own ideas and honing your interests by engaging in dialogue, as well as a variety of types of written work and exercises. Another of the most effective ways to study philosophy is through producing your own written work. Your tutors will help you refine your writing skills with constructive feedback and individual guidance. In core modules you’ll gain a strong foundation in a broad range of philosophical topics. You will then have the chance to tailor your studies to suit your interests by selecting your own optional modules, such as studying the philosophy of the environment, or world philosophies. You’ll have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad studying at one of our partner universities.
