Philosophy (with Foundation Year)

Whatever you choose to do in the future, a degree in philosophy will help transform the way you view the world and develop the transferable skills needed to succeed in a wide variety of interesting and rewarding careers. Through an examination of life's fundamental questions, philosophy encourages independent, creative thinking and a methodical approach to problem solving. Employers value the ability of philosophy graduates to analyse complex issues from different perspectives, present logical, reasoned arguments and communicate concepts and opinions with clarity and precision. BA(Hons) Philosophy at UWE Bristol is diverse and distinctive. You will explore the ethical, political and social questions that shape our lives, asking what it is possible to know and forming opinions on how best to change the world in light of what we know of it. Studying in an enthusiastic, close-knit group of students and lecturers, you will engage with the entire history of the subject, from its beginnings in ancient Greece to the great minds of nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century European philosophers. This breadth gives you a substantial foundation for your own philosophical work and the inspiration to tackle life's big issues for yourself.
