Course summary

**Why Warwick?**The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.**The course**Global Sustainable Development (GSD) encompasses a network of complex challenges that require innovative thought and practical answers. By studying Philosophy and GSD, you’ll encounter how thinkers of the past developed new modes of thought in response to the problems of their time. Today, global inequality, food security, and potentially irreversible changes in our environment demand new ways of thinking. Within the Philosophy Department, you’ll learn about key ethical theories and critical concepts such as biopower and existentialism, and develop vital reasoning and communication skills. Meanwhile, with GSD, you’ll take a transdisciplinary approach as you confront the big questions facing our world today and consider the practical solutions that may shape the future.Our students are aspiring global citizens with social consciences. They are flexible, adaptable and broad-minded. You’ll need to be ready to think creatively and embrace new opinions from your peers from across the world. We’ll challenge you to become an active participant in your own learning and you’ll build your skillset by completing professional skills certificates as part of the course. You’ll also have the opportunity to spend part of your second year studying abroad at our partner institution, Monash University, home to the world-leading Monash Sustainable Development Institute. Alternatively, you may choose to apply for an intercalated year spent either studying abroad or on a work placement (subject to you meeting departmental academic requirements).Students are automatically enrolled on the three-year course, however you have the option to change to a four-year course with an intercalated year in the third year.
