Philosophy Undergraduate Degree Structure

students chatting

At Lancaster University the first year is called Part I and the second and third years make up Part II.

Part I students take three courses in different subjects. A single honours philosophy student, as well as doing Part I Philosophy chooses two further courses either from within the department (i.e., Religious Studies; Politics; Ethics, Philosophy and Religion) or from a wide range of courses offered by other departments in the University.

Joint honours students (e.g., Philosophy and Politics) will be pre-enrolled onto two Part I courses (Philosophy, Politics) and choose one other. Triple honours students are pre-enrolled onto the three courses that make up their degree scheme.

Part I - First Year

All Philosophy students take the foundation course PHIL100. Many also take EPR100 Ethics Philosophy and Religion.

Part II - Second and Third Year

In the second and third year you choose which modules to study.  All students must take the equivalent of 180 credits (some courses are two-term) over the two years. Exactly how many of these modules are in Philosophy will depend upon your degree scheme.

Single Honours Philosophy majors must study at least 180 credits in Philosophy. Up to 60 credits can come from taking modules in one of the other “minor” subjects studied in Part I.

Joint honours must take at least 120 credits in Philosophy.

Triple honours must take at least 60 credits in each subject (maximum 120 credits)
