Course summary

By choosing HISTORY and PHILOSOPHY you’ll enjoy the freedom to choose from a wide range of optional modules, depending on your own preferences and interests.These two dynamic subjects will help you to develop your analytical and reasoning expertise, whilst also giving you an understanding of some of the philosophical ideology that has shaped world events and societies. This joint honours course is ideal for anyone who wishes to understand the history of ideas and culture. Philosophy aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. The course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives.
