This programme engages students with the vital and fundamental questions about human existence, values and beliefs that thinkers have asked throughout history and which are made all the more pressing and pertinent by the moral, religious, social and political challenges and crises of the contemporary world. This engagement is enriched in the programme through the dialogues and intersections between philosophy, ethics and a wide range of religions, all of which present a wealth of ideas and positions on these issues. This interdisciplinary context will foster your own development as thinkers, giving you the opportunity to think critically and creatively, making new links and finding new insights while you explore your own interests.
This degree will develop your skills of problem solving, analytical and creative thinking, as well as your ability to engage with philosophical, ethical and religious questions in an independent and sophisticated way. Through its interdisciplinary approach you will learn to engage in deep dialogue as well as the ability to empathise with and respect the views of others. These skills will make you highly desirable for careers where communication, leadership, problem solving and analytical thinking is important, such as management, law, social work and local government.
