What you need to know
Studying philosophy at Lancaster has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and has allowed me to study a wide range of subjects including ethics, epistemology, the nature of the mind and many more interesting topics.
Being taught by experts within their field who have a real passion for their subjects and who encourage and guide you through your work is incredibly helpful and is a key strength of the department.
I have also been fortunate enough to do a placement year whilst completing my studies. I worked for an international charity called Hospices of Hope which promotes hospice care in south-east Europe. Philosophy has given me key analytic and evaluative skills which helped me write trusts grants, conduct research and plan marketing materials in my role with Hospices of Hope.

Spotlight on BA (Hons) Philosophy, Politics and Economics
Our personal lives, our societies and our political institutions are shaped by economic forces. Economic activity has a political dimension and both politics and economics raise a host of deeper philosophical questions including questions about what matters and what is fair.
Through our flexible, modular programme, you can shape your degree to fit your interests and spend time discovering what you enjoy, exploring the areas that interest you the most.Philosophy, Politics and Economics BA Hons
