Philosophy (with Study Abroad) - Manchester Metropolitan University

**Overview** Looking at Philosophy from every angle - from Ancient Greece to modern life - you will examine and unravel the meaning of life, the nature of reality and more. Philosophers seek the answers to questions of universal importance, working to tackle issues around the nature of reality, our knowledge of the world and the truth of our existence. Throughout this programme of study, you’ll confront these questions and more, exploring the full scope and richness of the subject, from its historical roots to its relevance today. Our academic team are experts in their field, offering a supportive and stimulating environment for learning. Sharing their passion for the subject, they will guide you through the full range of philosophical questions and different philosophical traditions – giving you a rounded, balanced understanding of the subject. **Features and Benefits** You may choose the BA (Hons) Philosophy route now, and you’ll have the option to specialise after your first year, with our Ethics, Religion and Philosophy pathway. We place a strong emphasis on key employability skills, ensuring you have the IT, communication and team-working abilities that employers value. Learn from an academic team that’s friendly, open and passionate about philosophy. Together with fantastic support staff, they offer a stimulating environment for learning the subject. **Career Prospects** Because philosophy teaches you not what to think, but how to think, its study naturally leads to the development of many skills that are highly prized by employers, for example the ability to think clearly, logically, and creatively, to communicate articulately and accurately (both verbally and in writing), and to analyse critically and rigorously. A degree in Philosophy opens a wide range of career paths, from civil service, teaching and not-for-profits, to media, banking and recruitment. You can also go on to study at postgraduate level.
