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’ll 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. Previous graduates have gone on to careers in teaching and research, journalism, public relations, central and local government, the European Union, charities and NGOs. Recent students work in public and private sector organisations, both nationally and internationally.
