Philosophy is not only an interesting academic subject, it is also a way to understand the world around us. We investigate important and relevant topics such as:
- Evil and suffering
- How we deal with death
- Religion and feminism
- The environmental crisis
Taking on issues like these not only shows future employers that you are not afraid to take on complex problems, it will also change how you see the world. You will also explore the questions raised by religion and philosophy from the perspective of other academic subjects, such as literature, art, politics and film.
Religion, Philosophy and Ethics have always been closely related, and on this course you will explore the interactions between them. You will study both areas in both historical and contemporary contexts, and with reference to key philosophical and religious texts. However, we also encourage you to look beyond the established tradition and consider questions that may not appear in textbooks.
When you join us you will become part of a thriving academic community. Between the staff in the department we cover a wide range research specialisms, which helps to keep our course varied and research-informed. Our experienced team are passionate about their subject and dedicated to helping you achieve success. By giving you vital transferable skills and offering opportunities for work related learning, we also make sure you are ready for your career.
