Course summary

This is a joint honours course, where you study Philosophy alongside Sociology. 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. Sociology studies human social life, groups and societies. A wide-ranging subject, it analyses social relationships and social institutions, and the ways in which they shape people’s lives. Sociologists focus on many topics, ranging from global social processes to changing identities and personal relationships. Studying sociology will increase your knowledge and understanding of the social world in the 21st century. Our flexible course allows you to pursue your own areas of interest within the subject.
