This is one of several specialist routes available in our #BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities[R14]#. The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects - including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy and religious studies. You will then take two specialist philosophy modules, discovering more about the ideas of philosophers past and present and learning to tackle the big questions of philosophy yourself. You will explore a range of debates in ethics and political philosophy, as well as questions about the nature of the self, the existence of God, and the limits of human knowledge.Alongside your study of philosophy, you can choose to study a second specialism from the subjects listed above, entitling you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options. This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
- Knowledge and understanding
- Cognitive skills
- Practical and professional skills
- Key skills
The level and depth of your learning gradually increases as you work through the qualification. You'll be supported throughout by the OU's unique style of teaching and assessment - which includes a personal tutor to guide and comment on your work; top quality course texts; e-learning resources like podcasts, interactive media and online materials; tutorial groups and community forums.
