Philosophy Ethics and Religion - University of Southampton

A Philosophy, Ethics and Religion degree at Southampton provides you with the opportunity to explore fundamental and far-reaching issues. You will engage with questions that have puzzled great thinkers for millennia, but are still relevant today: How should we live? What can we really know? Can religious beliefs be justified? And what is their role in society? You will explore these fundamental questions using the philosophical method of reasoned argument and critical scrutiny. You will have the opportunity to explore ethical questions and views, and issues about the nature of religion and its place in society, as they are studied in a wide-range of fields, including anthropology, archaeology, history, and politics. This will give you an unparalleled opportunity to develop your ability to think clearly, critically and consistently, to understand varying points of view, to organise ideas and to work cooperatively with others - skills much in demand by employers. Explore questions about ethics, our place in the Universe, and the nature and role of religion, benefiting from Southampton’s complementary and world-leading expertise in Philosophy, Anthropology, Archaeology, History and Politics. Our extremely broad curriculum allows you to approach topics from multiple perspectives, with the flexibility to pursue your own interests. There is an emphasis on participation and discussion, with small-group teaching and one-on-one supervision from the first year. We also offer many opportunities to take modules outside your main degree subjects and to study abroad.
