BA PHILOSOPHY V500
Full Time: 3 Years
With our BA Philosophy, examine some of our most fundamental ideas about truth, reality, right and wrong and challenge society's views about them.
Studying philosophy at the University of Reading will equip you with the ability to think logically, to evaluate arguments critically, and to challenge your own ideas and those of other people. We will give you an understanding of the central philosophical principles, concepts, problems, texts and figures. You will be taught by leading experts whose research strengths lie especially in moral philosophy and the philosophy of the mind and language. You will also have the chance to study non-Western philosophies, especially Indian philosophy.
Philosophy is a flexible degree allowing you to shape your studies to your interests. You take six modules in your first year and only one is compulsory: Reason and Argument will introduce you to the general skills required for all philosophy. You can also select modules from outside the department. In years two and three you will have the opportunity to explore your chosen topics in more depth, with modules such as Ethics and Animals, Philosophy of Crime and Punishment and Philosophy of Religion.
We received 96% overall student satisfaction for BA Philosophy in the National Student Survey, 2019. You will be taught in small interactive seminar groups, encouraging discussion and debate with teaching staff and fellow students. You will be encouraged to undertake work placements, and there is the opportunity to study abroad in your second or third year.
