Teaching

In both subjects we use a wide range of teaching methods, from lectures, to small group seminars or tutorials, and film screenings.

For most modules at Levels 1 and 2 you will attend two lectures and one tutorial in each week. This may vary at 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.

Throughout the course you will be given the opportunity to view the films you are studying through weekly dedicated film screenings.

Assessment

Assessments across both subjects are carried out by coursework and exams and vary in type and weighting from module to module.

Assessment methods for philosophy modules can include:

  • essays

Assessment methods for film modules can include:
