This degree will deepen your understanding of philosophy, religion and ethics, and the questions they raise. You'll learn to develop and defend your own critical perspectives within the context of global events, exploring topics ranging from the value of religious faith and practices to the ethics of climate change or euthanasia. You'll study modules from philosophy, religion and ethics, and you'll be taught by researchers who are experts in their fields, including history, biblical studies and gender studies. There are plenty of modules to choose from and we will advise you on the best way to structure your options. In year three, you'll have the opportunity to write a dissertation, working closely with a member of academic staff. We have a lively academic community. For example our Sheffield Institute for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies is a world-leading institute for multidisciplinary research on the Bible. Our Centre for Engaged Philosophy pursues research into questions of fundamental political and social importance, from criminal justice and social inclusion to climate ethics, all topics that are covered in our teaching. There's always something exciting going on, whether it's put on by staff or students. You can pursue collaborative research projects, attend guest lectures, work with the public, or present your own academic work outside of the classroom.
