Course summary

This philosophy degree pursues questions about the nature of reality, explores theories of knowledge, reflects on key ethical concepts, and examines issues related to the philosophy of art, culture, science and technology.

Course overview

Newcastle Philosophy is rare among UK universities as much of our curriculum is dedicated to modern European philosophy. The curriculum includes thinkers such as Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, de Beauvoir, Sartre, Kristeva, Derrida and Foucault.

You'll also have the opportunity to explore key debates in the history of Western philosophy, including those in Ancient Philosophy, the Enlightenment and beyond.

Each year you’ll complete an individual project, where you apply the philosophy you learn to a topic of your choice. You'll open your mind to new ways of thinking and create your own learning path.

A dedicated project tutor will work with you throughout your degree and guide you through the project research process.

You'll learn how to question, analyse, and balance multiple (and often opposing) points of view - skills essential to a wide range of careers.

Teaching methods

Learning in Philosophy is an active process, centring on your own reading and inspired by lectures and discussion in seminars and tutorials.
