Philosophy is the perfect subject if you want to study the most profound questions facing humankind, whilst developing skills you can use every day, in your career and in your life. We celebrate independent thinking and seek to develop it through academic study and frequent practice, which includes small group teaching and one-to-one supervision.
Our undergraduate courses offer a modern, research-led curriculum taught by internationally renowned Philosophers who are strongly committed to teaching, developing and supporting the next generation. They embrace diverse topics, from literature to spirituality, Chinese and Indian philosophy to animal ethics, and neo-Platonism to feminism. If you choose to study straight Philosophy, you can combine this with another humanities subject through the University's Combining Subjects scheme.
