What is the nature of the mind? Do we have free will? Do we owe it to future generations to tackle climate change? Addressing issues of today, the past or what’s to come, philosophical questions are as relevant now as ever. On this research-focused course, you’ll engage in critical thinking, developing analytical and problem-solving skills that will enable you to understand, communicate and respond to different ideas and arguments effectively. Excellent preparation for further research or doctoral study, you’ll also be well placed for roles in business or government, marketing, policy-making, charitable organisations, education and training, or law.
