What’s the difference between belief and knowledge? Why are we here? How do we know what we know – and can we ever know anything at all? Philosophy at Leeds explores fundamental questions about how we understand the world. Through core and optional modules you’ll learn how to construct arguments and study key topics such as ethics and logic, as well as specialist knowledge in topics from ancient and moral philosophy to the ethics of life and death, philosophy of language or aesthetics. This degree will allow you to learn Portuguese from beginners’ level and gain an insight into Lusophone and Latin American history and culture. By combining core and optional modules, you’ll build language skills and explore topics from literature and cinema to national identity and the African Diaspora. You’ll also benefit from the Instituto Camões – the cultural institute of the Portuguese government is on campus and you’ll have access to all of its facilities.
