Course summary

Why study Philosophy and Heritage at UWTSD? • Philosophy explores the big questions – Who are we? What is our place in the world? How should we live? What is reality? Philosophy approaches such questions through argument, vision and imagination. • Philosophy is different from other academic disciplines in that it teaches you not what to think, but how to think, challenging one's beliefs and assumptions about the world. • Heritage Studies element of the programme explores different aspects of Heritage and Heritage-related agencies, institutions and subjects across a range of disciplines including not only philosophy, but also history and archaeology. • We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions. • You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.

Taking into account that student choices and requirements can differ radically, as well as ensuring a rounded knowledge of Philosophy and Heritage generally, the scheme offers modules covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of the areas of study include, for example, ethics, self and identity, knowledge and reality, equality, justice, existentialism, animal ethics, political philosophy, environmental issues, freedom, existentialism, and Buddhism. In terms of Heritage Studies, areas of study may include, for example, issues related to the built environment, nautical archaeology, the digital humanities, sustainable development, museums, and the conservation of buildings. Options to spend time in the Roderic Bowen Library may also be available. A work placement may be required, depending on the modules on offer. Overall, the Heritage Studies part of the programme focuses on enabling you develop an appropriate set of skills applicable to a range of jobs in the Heritage sector or cultural industries. ** Note that a range of modules in other disciplines is offered alongside philosophy and heritage studies.
