Date of entry

September 2020

Our course is designed to produce confident, intellectually engaged graduates, who can think creatively and independently, ask incisive questions, articulate their ideas, and solve complex problems. These are all attributes highly sought after by employers.

Our history graduates go on to work in industries such as the media, the heritage industry, museums and archives, teaching, politics, the civil service, business, finance, and the diplomatic service.

A philosophy degree gives you the ability to identify and explain the underlying issues in all kinds of debates. You will also learn to identify arguments from varied sources and traditions and offer clear responses to these arguments. You can summarise points of view which are not your own and will learn the self-discipline required for independent research.

Our philosophy graduates have gone on to postgraduate study and worked in a wide variety of careers including publishing, social work, education, and the music industry.
