Course summary

Studying Philosophy delivers highly marketable, highly transferable skills. If your ideal career requires clear thinking, talking, or writing, we'll help you prepare. Alongside this you will have the opportunity to further your own understanding of politics through the critical evaluation of political ideas, institutions and policy and decision-making processes in a national and international context. The course will equip you to understand the nature and extent of political theory, history of political thought, and political philosophy, to develop your own perspective and become more aware of traditional and current debates that concern political scientists. Discussion and debate is a distinctive feature of both Politics and Philosophy teaching, and you will be encouraged and supported to discuss and develop your own ideas both inside and outside of formal teaching sessions.A philosophy degree is particularly suited to careers in advertising, the civil service, education, film and television, information technology, journalism, law, marketing, and management. However, the emphasis we place on transferrable skills means that philosophy graduates are able to apply these skills in differing contexts and have confidence and ability to work effectively in a varied range of occupations. You can learn a language and travel abroad with awards and bursaries through Worldwise, and spend a year or a semester studying overseas. Recent philosophy graduates have gone on to postgraduate study or teaching in primary schools and secondary schools (including A level Philosophy and/or Religious Studies), higher and further education institutes and teaching English abroad. Others have gone into management and administration in a range of public and private sector organisations.
