The most exciting element of the Philosophy course for me is the wide variety of topics it covers, bringing together aspects from a whole range of diverse subjects. In one week I could be working through a set of logic questions, writing an essay about Mill's thoughts on feminism, and attending lectures on personal identity and utilitarianism! This diversity in the course makes it an incredibly engaging and continuously fascinating subject to study.
As well as giving me the chance to develop an array of practical, transferable skills, such as how to analyse and find flaws in an argument, it has also enabled me to develop my reading and essay writing skills. The Philosophy course has made me challenge every idea I hold and the one to one supervisions are a great opportunity to discuss these subjects in an incredibly stimulating environment, encouraging me to develop my thoughts more deeply, interrogate my beliefs and preconceptions, and question my very existence!
