Course summary

This course combines philosophy with study of Italian and provides a valuable skill set ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace. Both the Department of Philosophy and the School of Modern Languages encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for students as staff respond to new research.Italian language and culture have had a lasting impact on Europe, while today, Italy's innovative contributions to design, technology and fashion make it a major global commercial force. Italy is both traditional and modern – a tension that is apparent throughout its history and culture.You will spend your third year abroad studying or working, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural understanding. For further details of year abroad opportunities visit Global Opportunities (https://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/).In each year you will take an equal number of credits in Italian and philosophy. For philosophy you will study units covering introduction to philosophy, logic, and realism and normativity.In your first year of 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 a unit in critical thinking and logic.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.
