At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Philosophy and Politics. Studying Philosophy and Politics explores a range of contemporary issues, such as environmental matters, genetic engineering, and relationships with the Third World. Both disciplines are interested in issues about government, social structures, power, justice, and the relationship between the individual and the state.The clarity and precision in analysis provided by a training in philosophy complements the wide-ranging scope of political concerns, many of which have profound ethical implications of the kind dealt with in moral philosophy. Many students who study this combination are able to evidence their ability to think critically, take a balanced approach, make reasoned arguments and collaborate with colleagues, as well as possess a superb grounding in understanding the way people think and approach problems. In 2016, Keele University were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey.You could pursue a huge range of careers or continue further study. You might go into education, the law, finance, government, publishing, the media or the arts, civil service, or for a campaigning or lobbying group.
