Why study Philosophy at Manchester?
Philosophy is the study of the most general and fundamental features of reality – including ourselves – and the knowledge and beliefs we have about that reality which are embodied in our concepts, theories and practices.
Our BA (Hons) in Philosophy course will enable you to learn how to develop and justify your own answers to some of the most fundamental and important questions that human beings can ask:
- Can I know that I’m not trapped inside The Matrix?
- What makes something the morally right thing to do?
- Do we have free will?
- Does God exist?
- Is the human mind just a lump of grey matter?
Manchester has one of the largest philosophy departments in the UK, with specialists in both the philosophy of art and the philosophy of science.
We’re proud of our co-operative and supportive environment that promotes a spirit of open enquiry and intellectual rigour for our students.
