Philosophical reflection requires a distinctive combination of imagination and exact reasoning. You'll develop these skills through a wide range of modules. Philosophy at Sheffield is highly flexible. There are no compulsory modules.

In the first year you'll combine modules from across two groups: one which focuses on metaphysics, knowledge and logic, and the other on ethics, politics and religion. In your second and third years you'll continue to design your own pathway choosing freely from modules which enable you to tailor your degree to your own interests. 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.

Over the three years, you can develop your understanding of key areas including ethics, philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge, political philosophy, metaphysics and logic, as well as feminism, philosophy of education, and major figures in the history of philosophy. There are also individual project and work placement modules that allow you to pursue highly personal supervised study in areas of your choosing.
