Entry Requirements 2023-24
Philosophy at Lincoln sits within the College of Arts and students have access to specialist facilities to help them to develop their skills and knowledge.
The Great Central Warehouse Library provides access to more than 200,000 journals and 600,000 print and electronic books, as well as databases and specialist collections. Students can also access the library at Lincoln Cathedral – a centre for philosophical thinking since the time of the eminent 13th Century theologian, Bishop Robert Grosseteste.
Lincoln is home to the Lincoln Philosophy Salon, which holds monthly talks in a local pub from world-leading professional philosophers. This is a thriving organisation with a membership of around 600 people, which provides a great opportunity for students to interact socially with staff and to discuss cutting-edge ideas with some of the most important living philosophers working today.
In addition, the Undergraduate Philosophy Society, which is run by students, organises talks and social events for students interested in Philosophy. We also hold an Annual Philosophy Lecture, bringing a philosopher of international standing to Lincoln to give a talk on a topic of their choosing.
Students within the School of History and Heritage have the opportunity to spend a term studying at one of the University’s partner institutions in North America or Europe. Students will be expected to cover their own transport, accommodation, and living costs. Places are allocated competitively, subject to academic criteria.
"The thing that has stuck with me most from the course is that we are being taught to be philosophers rather than simply remembering what others have said."Molly O’Hanrahan, BA (Hons) Philosophy graduate
The range of fundamental skills involved in the study of Philosophy, such as critical thinking and the ability to analyse and communicate complex ideas clearly and logically, can equip graduates for a wide range of careers.
The strong research focus in our advanced Philosophy modules, and the fact that students can research and write an independent dissertation during the third year, aim to develop highly transferable research skills.
