This exciting and varied Joint Honours degree examines some of the most important questions affecting both the individual and society. While exploring the ways in which societies are organised and structured, you’ll consider important questions: why are we here? How do we know what we know – or can we ever know anything at all? Core modules will introduce you to key concepts, themes and methods in both subjects such as class, gender, ethics, political philosophy and how to construct arguments. The diversity of research interests at Leeds allows us to offer an impressive range of optional modules on topics such as philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, consumerism, globalisation, aesthetics, the sex trade, philosophy of language, feminist philosophy or race and ethnicity.
