Philosophy, Religion and Ethics BA (Hons)
This degree is an excellent way to develop a deeper understanding of philosophy, religion, and ethics, and the questions they raise. From the value of religious faith and practices to the ethics of climate change or euthanasia, you'll learn to develop and defend your own critical perspectives within the context of global events.

On this course, you will study modules from philosophy, religion and ethics, and you'll be taught by researchers who are experts in their field. You also have lots of choice, as none of our modules are compulsory, though we provide advice on the best way to structure your options.

You'll learn through interactive lectures and seminars and take part in presentations, debates and field work. You'll be assessed through examinations and essays as well as through presentations, posters, portfolios, video-blogs or artwork installations.

In year three, you'll have the opportunity to write a dissertation, working closely with a member of academic staff.

Our philosophy, religion and ethics community is an active one, hosting both the Centre for Engaged Philosophy and the Sheffield Institute for Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies. There's always something exciting going on, whether it's put on by staff or students. You can pursue collaborative research projects, attend guest lectures, work with the public, or present your own academic work outside of the classroom.
