About this course

In this joint honours course you’ll study questions that have challenged great thinkers for centuries but are still relevant today. Learn about ethical issues and belief systems in disciplines like anthropology, archaeology, history and politics. You’ll gain a grounding in philosophical and critical thought, and follow your own interests in optional modules.

This degree will give you an excellent education in philosophy, ethics and religion. In your degree you can:

  • develop an understanding of basic philosophical questions such as ethics, reason and responsibility

  • study questions such as the duties of affluent people towards those living in poverty around the world

  • learn about the ethics of global poverty, science and technology, plus moral questions, and the nature of moral judgments

  • apply philosophical thought to language, morality, sex and other important aspects of life

You’ll learn in small groups in a relaxed and friendly environment. You can take modules from other disciplines such as anthropology or psychology, studying a language, or choosing from a range of cross-disciplinary modules.
