Course summary

Studying Philosophy, Ethics and Religion offers you the opportunity to engage with the fundamental questions of life: What does it means to be human? How should we resolve moral dilemmas? Is it possible to prove that God exists? Our course draws together modules that explore ethics, analytical and continental philosophy, and Eastern and Western religions. If you have an enquiring mind and want to cultivate new skills - this may be the course for you. All of our modules are taught by experts in fields of Philosophy, Ethics and Religion, specialising in areas such as religious extremism, existentialism, applied ethics, aesthetics, Holocaust studies and the study of the world religions. Each year you will be able to choose from a wide range of courses and with no compulsory modules in your first and second year you will be able to tailor your degree to your own interests. In your final year of study, you will again be able to choose most of your modules but will also be required to complete an independent project which will give you the opportunity to research a topic of your choosing at an advanced level. Our courses are taught through interactive lectures and seminars, where you will be able explore and debate some of the most significant philosophical, ethical and religious issues that confront humanity today. You will also be given the opportunity to meet with your lecturers for one-to-one tutorials or in small groups to discuss and develop your ideas further. Our staff are dedicated to developing your academic and personal potential, ensuring that you are prepared for success after graduation. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see History (with Foundation Year) V10F.
