This degree has been designed for students who want to explore unique perspectives on the world. PHILOSOPHY gives you the ability to question the world in a critical manner which is a vital skill which many of today's leading employers are looking for. ENGLISH at NTU is an extremely flexible course which offers a broad range of optional modules that allow you to pursue your interests for the written word, from Shakespeare right through to travel writing. You'll be able to gain valuable work experience from our creative partnerships, where you'll be able to practically apply your theoretical knowledge and develop your career prospects. Philosophy aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. This course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives. In general, this course examines the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life, and has been designed in order to help you think more clearly and more critically about the world in which you live. Philosophy at NTU is taught by active philosophy researchers. The course will allow you to question the world in a critical way to develop excellent written and oral communication which is needed to recognise global trends and to articulate debates. The ability to question the world is an important skill which is recognised by many of today's leading employers and you'll learn to academically problem solve. 100% of English students would recommend studying at NTU (NSS 2020).
