Philosophy encourages you to consider universal questions about human behaviour. In History, you look at how these have affected society at key moments in time.
At Sussex, you will join a politically and philosophically engaged community as well as benefiting from resources such as The Keep – an archive centre close to campus.
With a History and Philosophy (Hons) degree at University of Sussex, you will gain analytical, communication, writing and research skills. This means you could go on to further study or sectors such as:
- production companies and broadcasters
- the Civil Service, the Government and health service
- heritage and museums.
You can also attend career events where you can meet graduate employers. Outside the classroom, you can join our Philosophy Society where you:
- get involved in philosophical debates
- attend talks by visiting speakers
- network with other philosophy students.
- Reason and Argument
- The Early Modern World
- Early Modern Philosophy
- The Making of the Modern World
- Science and Reason
- Truth and Morality: The Meaning of Life
