Comments about BA Ethics, Value & Philosophy - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    In your first year you will take the compulsory module Values & Virtues and at least one further module in philosophy. Your remaining modules can be taken in any other departments (conditions permitting), allowing you to tailor your studies to your own interests. The flexibility of the module system allows you to change your intended degree programme at the end of your first year, either to BA Philosophy (single or joint honours), or to a different subject altogether.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
