Teaching

We use a range of teaching methods, from lectures, to small group seminars or tutorials.

For most modules in Levels 1 and 2 you will attend two lectures and one tutorial in each week. This may vary in Levels 3 and 4 where you may have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.

For the philosophy lectures you will be introduced to the major themes and topics of a philosopher or philosophical problem. For the tutorials you will question and develop your own world views, construct arguments to defend them, and put together projects in small groups to illustrate them.

You will also engage in independent reading and research, with specially designed worksheets and assignments to help you to do this most effectively.

At Levels 1 and 2 you will have a tutor who leads the weekly tutorial discussion and who is there to help you if you need advice.

Assessment

Assessments are carried out through coursework and exams and vary in type and weighting from module to module.

Methods of assessment can include:

  • essays
  • tutorial performance
  • exams
  • online journals and discussions

At Level 4 you will apply the skills you have learned by writing a dissertation on a topic of your own choice.

In Levels 1 and 2 you'll also study additional Humanities or Social Science subjects, such as economics, English, history, politics or psychology.
