What will I learn?

Is humanity headed in the right or wrong direction? What's the best way for a person to attain happiness? Are scientists the new priests of society? Is there a meaning to life and, if so, what is it?Philosophy seeks to understand, and particularly to question, ideas concerning the nature of reality, value, and experience that play a pervasive role in understanding the world and ourselves. Analyse, evaluate, and debate these big questions in life and many more, as you explore views, ideas, theories, practices, and behaviours on this fascinating course. Study subjects such as ideas and ideologies in Politics, logic, anthropology, religion, and existential philosophy and literature, and develop core philosophical strengths as you learn to think well, spot errors in reasoning, analyse complex issues and arguments, build a strong case, and make your point with clarity and precision. With philosophy graduates found in almost every type of organisation in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors, from arts-based areas like publishing, the media, journalism, advertising, and teaching, through to computing, IT, law, and recruitment, let your combination of skills provide a springboard into a myriad of postgraduate courses and careers, and contribute your answers to the many questions that society still asks.**Please note that UHI North Highland, UHI Outer Hebrides and UHI West Highland have changed their names to become UHI North, West and Hebrides.
