    I've got an offer to do a politics and philosophy undergraduate degree starting this September but I am having last minute doubts over my degree choice as I am interested in taking philosophy on further, into postgraduate study. So my question is quite simple: would I be able to do a Masters/ PhD/ DPhil (whatever the hell it's called... I get confused) in philosophy afterwards even though my undergraduate degree won't be straight philosophy? And if so, would having effectively only done 'half' of a philosophy degree put me at a disadvantage when applying for postgraduate study?

    Thanks in advance for any help.


    I wasn't sure whether to put this in the Postgrad forum or the Philosophy one, but decided to put it here as it perhaps relevant to other subject areas as well.

    Yes its absolutely fine. Nearly all philosophy courses in this country require you to have at least 2 years of philosophy, or have it as a major component of a joint honours degree. You'll be fine.
