This unique multidisciplinary programme is designed to allow you to undertake sustained and focused study across the disciplines of Politics, Philosophy and Religion. It particularly encourages you to explore the interface between these related areas, and allows for the selection of optional modules across the whole Department.
In addition to core and optional modules, a 20,000 word dissertation gives you the opportunity to undertake an extended project which focuses upon one or a number of dimensions relating to the interface of politics, philosophy and religion.
The programme prepares you for a range of careers from working in non-governmental organisations, business, government, to think tanks. It also provides a firm foundation for those looking to pursue academic careers.
You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.
