Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
There are two related aspects of the BA Philosophy degree at Cardiff that mark it out among Russell Group universities. One is that there is a strong emphasis on ethics, politics, and aesthetics among the modules on offer. Although we do cover the full range of contemporary philosophical concerns, we are unusual in providing so much opportunity in these areas. The other is that our research and teaching is spread equally across both the 'analytic' and 'Continental' styles of Western philosophy. For historical reasons, most philosophy courses in the UK are almost entirely analytic. Some are almost entirely Continental. Only a very few are evenly balanced across the two approaches, allowing students to develop a full understanding of both with the possibility of an informed choice to specialise in one approach or the other. Your scheduled contact hours will be supplemented by the opportunity for individual meetings with academic staff, by supportive academic progress meetings with your personal tutor and by the opportunity to attend research seminars and careers activities. The School prides itself on nurturing a friendly, personalised and supportive environment for its students, with staff spending a great deal of time at various points in the semester in individual one-to-one meetings with students. Distinctive features The distinctive features of the course include: •a strong emphasis on ethics, politics, and aesthetics •equal attention to 'analytic' and 'Continental' styles of Western philosophy.

    Cardiff is a nice city, but I found my first year challenging to settle in. I felt like something of a wallflower in the uni. Cardiff Uni is a good university, though, and everyone will have a different experience. I know lots of people love the uni, and city.
