Philosophy/Politics (Equal) at University of York - UCAS

Course summary

Learn about the foundations of thought and political theory, build the understanding and analytical skills valued by top employers and prepare to shape the world. Studying Philosophy and Politics you'll develop an understanding not only of political theory but of the ancient and modern philosophical debates that drive political ideals. What is freedom, without the power to act? By what right do our rulers govern? What makes a society good and is ethical governance even possible? You'll learn with a diverse and international student body and with opportunities to study abroad you can develop a truly global perspective. Our active Club of Politics, Economics and Philosophy (PEP) encourages debate beyond the classroom, and employers value the skills you will develop in thinking across boundaries and engaging critically with a range of material.
