Studying Philosophy, Ethics and Religion offers you the opportunity to engage with the fundamental questions of life: What does it means to be human? How should we resolve moral dilemmas? Is it possible to prove that God exists? Our course draws together modules that explore ethics, analytical and continental philosophy, and Eastern and Western religions. If you have an enquiring mind and want to cultivate new skills - this may be the course for you.All of our modules are taught by experts in fields of Philosophy, Ethics and Religion, specialising in areas such as religious extremism, existentialism, applied ethics, aesthetics, Holocaust studies and the study of the world religions. Each year you will be able to choose from a wide range of courses and with no compulsory modules in your first and second year you will be able to tailor your degree to your own interests.
