Philosophy is the most ancient of academic disciplines, yet the uncertainties of modern living make the traditional philosophical challenges, even more, pressing in the 21st century.
During the BA in Philosophy at Southampton, you will gain an in-depth knowledge of the core areas of philosophy while pursuing your own interests through optional modules on the great philosophers and key philosophical topics. You will graduate as an independently-minded, confident individual with the skills required for a successful career.
You will have every opportunity to develop your own thoughts on philosophical issues and to engage in philosophical debate.
Year one offers lecture-based modules focusing on central themes, designed for students new to philosophy as well as those who have some familiarity with the subject, alongside staff-led tutorials involving three to five students.
In year two you will take a core module in the history of philosophy, accompanied by small-group seminars, and choose from a range of optional modules.
- The unusually wide range of courses, with much of our teaching conducted in genuinely small groups.
- High contact hours, including one-on-one supervision by faculty from your first year.
- The flexible curriculum allows you to design your own path of study.
