Philosophy and European Languages MA (Hons)

On this course you study a choice of two languages (French, German or Spanish) alongside philosophy, exploring our existence using critical thinking and argument, considering life's big issues and questions.

We specialise in continental (European) philosophy and teach key texts from the European tradition, including some of the most exciting thinkers of the last century.

We help you look at how philosophy is important to real-world concerns and contemporary issues by:

exploring films and artwork
discussing important scientific and technological developments
debating controversial ethical issues
looking at how texts written 300 years ago can be relevant to political situations today
At Levels 1 and 2 you will receive a grounding in ancient and modern philosophy and be introduced to fundamental ideas concerning ethics, epistemology (the nature of knowledge) and metaphysics (the nature of reality).

You then specialise in Levels 3 and 4 by drawing on a range of philosophy modules taught by lecturers engaging in interdisciplinary research.

You will study existentialism in relation to contemporary culture, technology, and film, and topics in aesthetics and the philosophy of art. You will also be encouraged to make links between philosophy and other subjects.

You'll also study modules in each of your languages throughout each year, either as a beginner or at intensive level if you have previously studied the language at Higher/A-Level.
