About the course

PHILOSOPHY gives you the ability to question the world in a critical manner which is a vital skill which many of today's leading employers are looking for. MEDIA is a popular course which enables you to design your perfect degree by offering a mixture of theoretical and practical modules that consider approaches to the media. You can shape your study according to your strengths, interests and career ambitions. Philosophy at NTU aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. This course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives. In general, this course examines the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life, and has been designed in order to help you think more clearly and more critically about the world in which you live. NTU's Philosophy courses are joint 9th in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2020).
