Comments about BA Philosophy - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    The Department's first year modules offer a self-contained introduction to the subject which is designed for those who have had no previous philosophical training. Large numbers of students at Reading, irrespective of their final degree subject, take the opportunity to sample Philosophy as part of their first year programme. The modules also provide an essential foundation for those who intend to continue with Philosophy (singly or in combination) for the BA degree.
  • 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.
