What is a philosophy degree Watch
Never studied it before, also never done any essay based subjects so will it be really difficult for me?
Is it anything like psychology?
To answer your question, I picked out the following information:
"Modules can include logic, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of science and political philosophy"
But also remember that modules are at the discretion of the University, so there will be different ones than the ones listed above.
Essay-wise, it really depends on how you tackle it. I'm sure if you analyse before jumping in, you should be fine. Taking your time is key.
