Course Information

This A' Level Philosophy course will give you a thorough grounding in key concepts and methods of philosophy. You will have the opportunity to engage with big questions in a purely secular context.

The course will teach you to be clear and precise in your thinking and writing. You will engage with complex texts, analysing and evaluating the arguments of others and constructing and defending your own arguments.

For this subject we do not offer the AS Level as a standalone qualification. If you decide to enrol onto this course, you would need to complete the Full A Level.
