Course summary

BSc (Hons) Philosophy & Computer Science combines study of Philosophy and Computer Science, and exploration of their intersections. The Philosophy part of the programme is concerned with fundamental questions about, among other topics, the nature of reality, what we can know, and how we should act. It engages with some of the most searching, creative and influential thinkers of the past two-and-a-half thousand years. Students explore central questions, arguments, theories and texts concerning the world and our place within it, developing rigour and clarity in thinking and writing. Computer science in this programme cultivates the knowledge, techniques, and tools to develop effective and secure computer software according to legal, ethical, and professional frameworks. Students study the fundamentals of programme design including object-oriented design, software development, computer organisation, systems and networks, theory of computation, principles of languages, and advanced algorithms and data. Students acquire programming and software development skills as well as a combination of analytical, critical thinking, and research skills. They also develop communication and problem solving capabilities that are highly prized in the evolving employment market. These valuable and transferable skills open a wide array of career possibilities upon graduation.

Students can choose to deepen their focus on philosophy and computer science through their elective courses, or they can further contextualise and broaden their studies with courses that match other interests and goals.

Interviews also give you an opportunity to ascertain whether you enjoy the tutorial method of teaching in the ‘taster tutorial’ setting of our interviews. Most students find the interview to be an enjoyable experience.
