Undergraduate study

Royal Holloway offers a wide array of undergraduate degree courses in Philosophy. In addition to our Single Honours degree, Philosophy can form a minor component of degrees across the academic spectrum, including Mathematics, Physics, and film Studies, and forms 50% of the content of joint degrees offered with Classical Studies, Comparative Literature, Drama, English, Modern Languages, Music, and Politics and International Relations. We also offer a Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) degree with options to vary the weighting of each subject over the course of your degree.

Our degrees are open to anyone with an interest in philosophical issues, whatever subjects you have previously studied, and are also available on a part-time basis. Our first year courses are specially designed to introduce students to the main issues in Philosophy, and courses in the second and third years provide opportunities to study Ancient Philosophy, Modern and Contemporary Political Thought, Ethics, Epistemology and Scepticism, and Major Modern and Contemporary Anglo-American and European thinkers,

No previous experience of Philosophy is necessary, just the desire to think rigorously and in detail about how we understand the world.
