Course summary

This flexible degree allows you to shape your studies to your interests. Only two modules are compulsory in your first year: Values and Virtues is an introduction to moral philosophy; Reason and Argument introduces you to the skills required for all philosophy. You can select four other modules of your choice, with some from outside philosophy if you choose. In years two and three you will have the opportunity to explore your chosen topics in more depth, with modules such as Ethics and Animals, Philosophy of Crime and Punishment and the Environmental Ethics.

We are one of the only universities to offer BA Ethics, Value and Philosophy. You will learn about the central philosophical principles, concepts, problems, texts and figures, with an emphasis on moral philosophy and the theory of value. You will be taught by leading experts and authorities whose research strengths lie in moral philosophy and the philosophy of the mind and language. You will also have the chance to study non-Western philosophies, especially Indian philosophy.
