About the course
Philosophy has been taught at Hull since 1927. Students at Hull benefit from very small group tutorials and seminars. You will be taught by people who are passionate about their subject, several of whom are internationally renowned scholars, exploring issues at the cutting-edge of the discipline. In the 2015 National Student Survey, 100% of students praised our staff's ability to make the subject interesting.
This degree course provides students with a range of skills that readily transfer to many areas of employment making our students highly employable. You will learn to: think critically, solve problems, communicate confidently and effectively, and work independently and in groups. We offer the option of a foundation year for students who have taken time away from education, need to enhance their language and writing skills or simply need to reinforce their academic skills for further study.
With strong international links, students can opt to spend some or all of their second year at universities in the USA, Spain, Greece or other European countries. We often arrange teaching exchanges and welcome overseas philosophers as visiting scholars conducting research.
