Overview

We are always striving to offer courses that provide a distinct, high quality academic experience for students, that enables them to acquire the necessary academic knowledge, understanding, general and subject-specific skills required to pursue a graduate level career. Further detailed information about the course, module content, etc. will be available in due course, but we hope the following provides you with an overview of what we have planned. 

Philosophy is arguably the oldest university subject and has the widest field, with philosophers asking fundamental questions about values, culture, science, religion and society. As such it sits at the heart of any university, engaging with and enriching other programmes, but it has a special role at our university pledged to pioneering values‐driven education and asking big questions about human existence.

Careers

Students of the Philosophy (Hons) programme at The University of Winchester also learn a wide range of transferable skills that employers value highly. These include critical thinking, gathering and analysing evidence, communication and IT skills, cultural awareness, collaboration and teamwork.

Students are well equipped to move into teaching, with increasing numbers of students taking philosophy subjects in secondary schools.
