At Level 1, you will study Plato and Descartes, as well as a variety of thinkers on the good life and the nature of reality. At Level 2 you will study existentialist philosophers such as Sartre and Camus in relation to contemporary culture, technology, and film, and topics in aesthetics and the philosophy of art..

Please note: for a Philosophy degree, students are required to take any two Level 1 or 2 modules (not necessarily one of each; it could be two at level 1, or two at Level 2).

You can then specialise in Levels 3 and 4 through taking different options including modules on technology, the self, art and religion.

For single Honours students the dissertation in Level 4 is the high point, where you put forward and defend a thesis in an area of philosophy of your choice. Recent dissertation topics have involved music, film, the environment, gender, law, evolutionary theory, artificial intelligence, photography, literature and theatre.
