Program Overview

This course will help you to realise your full potential both as an innovative and self-reflective thinker and as an active citizen able to make a positive contribution to communities, workplaces and society.

Why study philosophy?

  • By examining life's fundamental questions, philosophy helps to shape the way we think about the world.
  • What are the ethical, political and social questions we need to ask ourselves? What can we know? And how can we change the world using our knowledge?'
  • Exploring questions such as these hones and develops your thinking skills, and provides a strong springboard into many professions.

Why study at UWE Bristol?

  • BA(Hons) Philosophy is a diverse and distinctive degree that will give you the broad grounding you need for your own philosophical work, and the inspiration to tackle life's big issues for yourself.
  • Studying in a close-knit group of students and lecturers, you'll engage with the history of philosophy, from its beginnings in ancient Greece to the great minds of 19th, 20th and 21st century continental philosophers.
  • You'll learn how to analyse complex issues from different perspectives, present logical, reasoned arguments, and communicate concepts and opinions with clarity and precision. 
  • Benefit from a diverse range of work-based learning opportunities from teaching philosophy in schools, to organising your own philosophy conference.
  • Apply your knowledge and expertise on a work placement. Where possible, we offer opportunities to study abroad in Europe.
  • With options for final year specialisms, you'll develop the skills and knowledge that will equip you well for your career and life in general.
  • UWE Bristol is a member of the British Philosophical Association, meaning you'll benefit from a range of up-to-date resources, information and guidance during your study.

Where can it take me?

  • Our philosophy graduates are in demand across journalism, law, banking, the creative industries and all kinds of business management.
  • You could work in non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or specialise in teaching, research, counselling or healthcare, among many other areas.
