University of Sheffield Philosophy
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. You plan your own degree pathway, choosing the modules that interest you most.
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. We also teach courses on major figures in the history of philosophy such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes and Hegel.
In the first year you’ll take a mixture of philosophy modules and subjects in other departments, for instance: you might want to study a language or take a course in history. Your second and third years will be devoted to philosophy modules.
Financial help from the University – bursaries
If you’re a UK student, you could be entitled to a University bursary. A bursary is the same as a grant – you don’t have to pay it back.
