Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Essex has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our BA Philosophy teaches you to dig deeper into ideas and challenge received wisdom. You rigorously examine the most fundamental questions about human life: Does God exist? Is material success all that counts in life? What do I owe to others? How free am I to decide my own future? We cover a wide range of topics from the meaning of life to capitalism and its critics, and from ancient philosophy to current trends in European thought. We have particular strengths in the areas of ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of religion, and European philosophy (including critical theory, phenomenology, and existentialism).
