The BA Philosophy requires imagination and careful attention to standards of argument. From the start of your studies this course enables you to develop both these skills by exploring philosophical themes and theories. You will engage in philosophical debates that have been developed throughout history, from the work of the Ancient Greeks through to the most up-to-the-minute research.
Themes distinctive to UEA include philosophy and film, unusual opportunities to explore ancient philosophy and several modules with a literary focus.
The teaching programme is designed to facilitate development, allowing you to improve your study and research skills alongside your ability to engage with philosophical thought and debate. During your studies you will produce written work which will be assessed by your tutors, so you can receive feedback to help you develop your writing ability. Time is set aside for you to call on the lecturers to discuss your work or to gain individual guidance.
