Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.Keele Philosophy offers an exceptionally broad course with plenty of option choices so you can design your own degree. It encompasses analytic and continental traditions and philosophical theories from around the world. Keele is strong on research and consistently highly ranked for student satisfaction (96%, NSS 2017; 4th in UK, Guardian 2018).In Philosophy, you will study texts, think about ideas and formulate your own philosophical theories. You will explore central themes – such as moral and political philosophy, logic, epistemology, and the philosophies of mind, religion and science – and will consider key philosophical problems about the nature of the world, the mind and various solutions proposed. You’ll learn about different philosophical traditions past and present, including Anglo-American, Indian, Buddhist, Greek, French and German philosophy. You’ll enhance your logical and critical thinking skills, and develop the use of sound arguments to defend your views while detecting fallacies and other argumentative weaknesses. You'll learn to present your work in a variety of ways. Keele has a thriving student-led Philosophy Society, and the programme engages widely with other universities, especially through its Royal Institute of Philosophy lecture series.This course provides a superb grounding in understanding the way people think and approach problems, which is why philosophy has a strong record for graduate employment among non-vocational degrees. You will gain highly developed skills in critical thinking and multiple approaches to problem solving, both of which are highly prized by employers. You will learn to organise your time and workload, to present your views confidently and to negotiate with others. Keele philosophy graduates have gone into a wide range of different careers, including education, the law, finance, government, publishing, the media, the police and civil service, the arts, business and information management, as well as going on to further study.
