Course summary

This course combines philosophy with study of Portuguese, providing a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to the increasingly globalised workplace.Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world, and Portuguese-speaking countries such as Brazil and Angola have complex and fascinating cultures.You will spend your third year abroad working or studying at a partner institution in a Portuguese-speaking environment. This 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/).Both departments enjoy a strong reputation for teaching and research and this course combination provides intellectual challenge with a cosmopolitan perspective.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.
