Philosophy degree offered at Lancaster University builds on a core module, which introduces you to central disciplinary skills and knowledge, with choice from a wide range of optional modules in the various sub-disciplines.
Your modules will be taught in groups, or by one-to-one supervision. The programme culminates in the writing of a dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.
The advanced research skills, developed through the programme, can be relevant to a range of professions. Equally, if you intend to go on to a PhD, this programme provides an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the two disciplines.
