What is philosophy? Why is it important? Is it relevant? What do we mean by ‘culture’ and why are its many forms so hotly contested? Why is it so important to our sense of identity and belonging? These are among the many questions you will ask studying Philosophy and Cultural Studies. As a student of Philosophy at Kent, you do not so much learn about philosophy as learn to do it yourself. This includes not only studying major philosophies and philosophers, but also contributing your own ideas too. Taking Cultural Studies with Philosophy enables you to benefit from the Philosophy modules offered by the School of European Culture and Language alongside Cultural Studies modules offered by the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research. Cultural Studies at Kent is an innovative subject with distinctive perspectives on present day culture. We explore connections between popular culture, the arts and everyday life by crossing social sciences/humanities boundaries.
