Not just quiet contemplation – philosophy has great practical value. You enjoy an exciting and cohesive course of study in philosophy, with a special focus on religion and ethics, including momentous issues like the meaning of life, the relationship between faith and reason, arguments for and against the existence of God, and the moral status of abortion and euthanasia. You have the opportunity to study both classic texts and on-going debates in these fields, across a range of philosophical traditions, and are equipped to engage with these discussions in an informed and critical way. Through our Q-Step Affiliate Status, we offer you the opportunity to develop your quantitative skills by taking a specialised degree pathway or receiving a student bursary to go on a quantitative work placement. Q-Step is funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
