Students who take Philosophy and Religion often do so with the aim of becoming teachers. The programme features built-in assessment tasks and classroom events designed to develop skills central to teaching, including planning and presenting material to an academic audience.
We're also developing in-class, hands-on opportunities for you to gain real experience in teaching: something that will be crucial if you're looking to apply for a PGCE or other teaching qualification after graduation.
These same skills, particularly the ability to present to a group, to work in teams, to debate and to prepare presentations for the communication of ideas, are key skills valued by employers whichever path you follow.
Other career destinations for our graduates include media production, publishing, law, politics, the Civil Service, business and the charity sector. You can also choose to go on to further study.
The University provides comprehensive help through our dedicated Careers Advice Centre. The centre offers competitive internships, mock interviews with trained advisers and CV workshops. All services will remain open to you whenever they're required throughout your career.
