Course summary

The first year is intended to give you a basic grounding in topics in Philosophy and Religion so that you become familiar with these subjects even if you have not studied them before. The first year modules provide you with a solid grounding in the various skills required for subsequent study in Years 2 and 3. Modules in Years 2 and 3 will provide you with a range of religious and philosophical modules, many of which are relevant to issues of contemporary concern. In Year 3 the range of modules includes a dissertation module, which involves independent study with supervised support on a topic of your choice from any of the modules you have studied within the School. The dissertation module is the only compulsory module in the degree programme.The Placement Year provides you with a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and develop valuable skills and contacts through working in field relevant to your chosen degree subject. The Placement Year is taken between years 2 and 3 of your degree and students are away for the whole of the academic year. The minimum period in placement (at one or more locations) is seven calendar months; more usually you would spend 10-12 months with a placement provider. Placements can be UK-based or overseas and you will work with staff to plan and finalise the placement arrangements. You would normally start sometime in the period June to September of your second year and finish between June and September the following year. You will be supported throughout the placement period by a dedicated member of staff within your academic school.
