Course summary

Philosophy and Politics at Aberdeen is a great subject pairing, taking you on a fascinating study of argument and how we apply it to Big Questions of fundamental importance to us as humans. You will study these subjects within the context of the wider world of international relations and politics across the world – giving you the skills for a wide range of careers in politics, media and many other fields.Philosophy attempts to answer questions such as: What is knowledge? What is the nature of truth? Why should we act morally? Philosophy is just as much the study of reasoning and argument as it is the application of thought to specific problems. What makes Philosophy at Aberdeen especially attractive is the breadth of courses, the user-friendly materials you will use and the experts who will teach you. In your first year alone, you can study topics such as How Should One Live? Controversial Questions, and Experience, Knowledge and Reality.In Politics, you will be right at the front of debate on developments in the world today, international relations and global politics, taught by highly-regarded experts regularly commenting in the media on events unfolding in the world. You will explore voting behaviour, different political systems, making and implementing policy, nationalism, concepts of democracy and ever-present concerns of conflict and peace. You can also take advantage of unique options made possible by the research pedigree of our academic team with a strong track record in publishing international papers and articles. The combination of analytical and intellectual skills you will develop and their transferability will be a great foundation for any career you choose, including politics, international business and organisations, NGOs, government service, marketing and much more.
