About this course

How should we live? What can we really know? Can religious beliefs be justified? This BA Philosophy, Ethics and Religion degree will allow you to examine far-reaching questions that have puzzled great thinkers for centuries. You’ll gain a grounding in philosophical and critical thought, and have the freedom to pursue your own interests in optional modules like metaphysics, Neolithic Britain and Islamic fundamentalism.

This degree will give you an excellent education in philosophy, ethics and religion.

In your degree you can:

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

  • grapple with complex contemporary questions such as the duties of affluent people towards those living in poverty around the world

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

  • study abroad at one of our partner institutions

  • develop research and presentation skills  

You’ll benefit from a rich, and enjoyable experience, and graduate as a confident, curious and independent self-starter equipped with the skills for a successful career.

You can take modules from other disciplines such as anthropology or psychology, studying a language, or choosing from a range of cross-disciplinary modules. These include topics such as social enterprise, risk management, and living and working on the web.
