This exciting and varied joint honours degree examines some of the most important questions affecting both the individual and society. While exploring the ways in which societies are organised and structured, you'll consider important questions: why are we here? How do we know what we know – or can we ever know anything at all?
Core modules will introduce you to key concepts, themes and methods in both subjects such as class, gender, ethics, political philosophy and how to construct arguments. The diversity of research interests at Leeds allows us to offer an impressive range of optional modules on topics such as philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, crime and deviance, gender, aesthetics, disability, philosophy of language, feminist philosophy or race and ethnicity.
Learning from expert tutors across two fascinating subjects, you'll gain a variety of skills while exploring how society and the individual relate to each other, as well as how individuals understand the world.
Application deadline details:
Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
