This course offers you both depth and breadth over three years of exciting and challenging study. In the first year you will gain a grounding in the fundamentals of philosophy through two mandatory Introduction to Philosophy units. You will also take units in logic and metaphysics, which will stretch you with challenging ideas that most other philosophy courses in the UK only offer to students in their second year. You can also choose units such as Philosophy of Science, Critical Thinking or a text-based unit, or you may decide to take open units outside the Department of Philosophy in your first year. In your second year you complete your foundation in philosophy before progressing to advanced units in your third year, when you will also take two independent study units and write an extended essay for each, supervised one-on-one over a term.
