Course summary

What does ethics mean in a world divided by war and inequality? Can philosophy help us to answer the most pressing questions of the twenty-first century? Students of Philosophy, Politics, Ethics address a range of political problems in a critical, interdisciplinary environment. Guided by internationally renowned staff, and taught in small seminar groups, you develop skills in public-speaking, debating, and critical analysis – this develops your capacity to solve real-world problems and is relevant for a wide range of careers. The first year provides key skills and knowledge. In the second year you begin to specialise, choosing from option pathways. In the third year, you continue your option pathways and also carry out an independent project. Guided by a supervisor you will become an expert in your chosen area of research, preparing you for life after graduation. Our student community is friendly and diverse. There are many opportunities each year to organise and attend events, where students meet and work with international scholars, politicians, activists and writers.
