This degree allows you to combine the history of intellectual thought on profound and challenging problems, or the social diversity associated with important contemporary issues, with one of a number of modern languages. It is a four year programme, with the third year spent studying abroad developing your language skills. While studying Philosophy you will discuss and explore long-standing questions on the nature of many topics: knowledge, science, reality, ethics, art and beauty, the mind-body relationship, the meaning of life and more. Studying a modern language will enable you to develop strong skills in spoken and written language, and analytical thought, and gain a deeper understanding of another culture and people. You can choose to study Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish. See entry requirements for more information. You will receive an excellent research-inspired education in a supportive, responsive environment from expert academics who are passionate about their subjects. By the end of your degree, you will have acquired a diverse and valuable set of skills employers seek across a wide range of professions.
