Course summary

This is a combined honours course, where you study Philosophy alongside Politics. Philosophy tackles some of the most exciting and fundamental questions about human nature and our place in the world, such as whether the mind is a computer and if it is rational to believe in God. You will explore the way we think and reason and the assumptions that underpin what we think we know about ourselves and the world. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the history of philosophy and contemporary debates, as well as the ability to ask challenging questions, reach reasoned conclusions and express yourself with clarity and precision. The study of politics is the study of power. It starts by examining the roots and nature of political activity set in the context of wider social activity. It also explores governments and types of governance, as well as the nature of power and rule under democratic and non-democratic regimes. After the first year, you will have the opportunity to participate in the design of your own course of study with guidance from your teachers, following your own areas of interests.
