Course summary

This course combines philosophy with study of French, providing a valuable skill set ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace.In each year you take an equal number of credits in French and philosophy. For philosophy you will study units covering introduction to philosophy, logic, and realism and normativity, as well as undertaking an extended essay.For French, you will study language and culture units with options ranging from medieval literature to contemporary cinema. You will spend your third year studying or working abroad in a French-speaking environment. For further details of year abroad opportunities visit Global Opportunities (https://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/).Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching resulting in a vibrant learning environment for students as staff respond to new research in their teaching. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges.In your first year in philosophy you will gain a grounding in the fundamentals of philosophy through two mandatory introductory units – one exploring issues in epistemology and metaphysics, and the other concerning moral and political philosophy. You will also take units in critical thinking and logic, and have a choice of other units, which have recently included Readings in Value Theory, and Knowledge and Reality. You may also take open units outside the department in your first year.In year two you complete your foundation in philosophy with mandatory units and conduct more detailed study in topics ranging from ethics to philosophy of language.In the final year you may undertake an independent study unit on almost any topic in philosophy, writing an extended essay in consultation with a supervisor. Final-year taught units relate to the research interests of staff in areas ranging from global justice to philosophy of physics.
