Introduction to Undergraduate Philosophy
These are some of the kinds of questions that we look at in philosophy. Here at Lancaster we approach these questions not only through the history of philosophy - figures such as Plato, Descartes and Nietzsche - but also in terms of contemporary philosophical discussion of a wide range of important and relevant topics.
There are nine philosophers in the department with a wide range of expertise and The Complete University Guide 2012 places Lancaster number one for philosophy in the Northwest.
The Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) offers a wide range of undergraduate programmes in philosophy, including single honours Philosophy various joint honours programmes (such as Philosophy and Religious Studies) and combined (or "triple major") options (such as Philosophy, Politics, Economics).
All of these courses aim to introduce students to key philosophical problems and to develop a range of methods for analysing, critically engaging with, and discussing such problems. In doing so we aim to enable students to develop transferable skills in argumentation and in the critical analysis of problems. This helps prepare students for both employment and further study and training after graduation.
Lancaster University is ranked 5th in the UK for graduate employability according to data from the 2012 Complete University Guide.
