Philosophy at University of Warwick - UCAS

Course summary

Philosophy enables you to explore big questions: What is the nature of the mind? Is it possible for us to know about the external world? Do we have the power to act freely? By choosing our Philosophy degree, you learn to critically analyse arguments and clearly articulate ideas. These skills are transferable to many careers and job roles. Our single honours Philosophy course offers a broad range of modules as well as the freedom to choose your own path through the subject. You will learn how to think carefully and critically about a variety of philosophical questions. Topics you may study include:

  • What does it mean to know something, and what can we know?
  • What does leading a good life consist in?
  • Is the mind identical to the brain?
  • Should we impose limits on human enhancement?
Your first year is designed to help you develop the skills and confidence to succeed on your selected path. You will learn through a variety of teaching and assessment methods in order to foster your development as an independent learner and to help you develop the skills needed to pursue a range of careers. In your second and your final year, there is a broad array of optional modules to choose from, which allow you to sample a number of different areas of philosophy, or specialise in a particular area of philosophy, such as continental philosophy, or philosophy of mind. You may also choose to apply for an intercalated year, spent either studying abroad or on a work placement. This extends the duration of your degree to four years and will be reflected in your degree qualification (for example, BA Philosophy with Intercalated Year, or BA Philosophy with Work Placement).
