Subjects

Management studies

Philosophy

**BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT:** - The study of business and management offers you a structured insight into both the theoretical and practical dimensions of organisations and management. You will benefit from our collaborative ties with local industry and commerce which make significant contributions to the degree programme. Theory and practice is taught through a variety of innovative learning methods and opportunities.
**PHILOSOPHY**: - Philosophy is the systematic attempt to arrive at clear answers to profound questions about issues such as knowledge, life, morality, science and human nature using reason and argument. We host reading parties for students in the Highlands, and have a flourishing undergraduate Philosophy Society. We are home to the Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Although there aren't a lot of jobs around for professional philosophers, philosophy degrees are a relatively popular option, with more than 2,000 students graduating in a philosophy-related subject in 2015 - a little down on previous years, but still healthy. Nearly a quarter of philosophy graduates take a postgraduate qualification, and it's a relatively common subject at both Masters and doctorate level — so if you think academic life might be for you, think ahead about how you might fund further study. For those who go into work, philosophy grads tend to go into teaching, accountancy, consulting, journalism, PR, housing, marketing, human resources and the arts while a few go into the computer industry every year, where their logical training is highly rated.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
