What is the nature of reality? Are our minds separate from our bodies? Does virtue require moral knowledge? Studying a philosophy degree course will equip you with the techniques and tools to creatively answer the biggest abstract questions of our time. You'll develop a disciplined approach to thinking, learn how to dissect arguments, and find out how to form your own. You'll also study some of the greatest philosophers throughout history, including Nietzsche, Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein. We teach in small groups, giving you access to individual support to guide your learning.
Focus your studies on philosophy, or combine it with another interest by choosing a joint honours degree.
