Find out more about the TEF.

Our unique World Philosophies degree offers you the chance to engage with a diverse range of philosophical traditions from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. This course will expand your knowledge and develop your critical understanding of philosophy in the context of a wider range of societies and historical eras than a traditional philosophy degree. You will investigate the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge; traditions of argumentation; as well as political and ethical systems of thought from a truly global perspective.

This combined degree also focuses on the languages and cultures of sub-Saharan Africa. It includes the study of an African language and a wide choice of course units in the related cultural fields of Literature, Art, Performance and Religion-Philosophy.
