Your tutor will guide you through issues such as conducting independent research, and you will have ample opportunity to liaise with fellow-students online. There is also a comprehensive tutorial strategy that involves both tutors and module team authors. The Philosophy part 1 module from The Open University UK encourages independent thought and independent study using the huge range of online books and articles available via the OU Library. You can use this module to extend your studies in the subject, or to change to philosophy from another discipline.
Employers greatly value the skills taught in philosophy courses: the capacity to think well about important issues, to assess and formulate arguments, to communicate clearly and succinctly, and to be an independent and flexible thinker. In addition, this module also pays attention to presentation skills, and the skills underlying peer interaction and review.
