Overview

Philosophers seek the answers to questions of universal importance, working to tackle issues around the nature of reality, our knowledge of the world and the truth of our existence. Throughout this (Hons) Philosophy programme from the Manchester Metropolitan University of study, you’ll confront these questions and more, exploring the full scope and richness of the subject, from its historical roots to its relevance today.

Our academic team are experts in their field, offering a supportive and stimulating environment for learning. Sharing their passion for the subject, they will guide you through the full range of philosophical questions and different philosophical traditions – giving you a rounded, balanced understanding of the subject.

You will also have the opportunity to study abroad, including in the US, if you wish, and also the option to do your third year as a placement in Britain or abroad. 

Career

Because philosophy teaches you not what to think, but how to think, its study naturally leads to the development of many skills that are highly prized by employers, for example the ability to think clearly, logically, and creatively, to communicate articulately and accurately (both verbally and in writing), and to analyse critically and rigorously.

A degree in Philosophy opens a wide range of career paths, from civil service, teaching and not-for-profits, to media, banking and recruitment. You can also go on to study at postgraduate level.
