Take on the big questions that have mystified humanity since the dawn of consciousness and discover how the greatest minds have tried to answer them. Learn to engage philosophical methods in everyday life, and develop key transferable skills for your future career. Our BA (Hons) Philosophy degree will introduce you to the biggest puzzles that have fascinated humans for centuries. You’ll consider questions such as ‘who are we?’, ‘what can we know?’ and ‘what should we do to lead worthwhile lives?’ - as well as finding out how others have attempted to solve them. Your studies will provide you with an understanding of the history of the subject, as well as contemporary debates within both the analytic and continental traditions of philosophy, ensuring you graduate with a broad understanding of the subject, while our optional modules will give you the chance to focus on particular areas of interest, such as Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Art, Ethics, Philosophy of Mind or Political Thought. By studying the ideas and arguments of the major philosophers from the past and the present and engaging in debates with your fellow students, you’ll develop your thinking so it becomes more rigorous, systematic and creative. You’ll also pick up transferrable key skills that will be of use throughout your career, including critical analysis, complex problem solving and judgement. Your studies will be supported by our core team of Philosophy staff, who offer one-to-one personal tutoring and personalised feedback on your assessments (our BA (Hons) Philosophy was voted 2nd in the UK for ‘Satisfied with feedback’ in the Guardian University Guide 2018). You can also join our Philosophy Society, which organises events such as debates, workshops and quizzes.
