King’s College London

Our intercalated Philosophy BSc programme will explore philosophy in its broadest sense – as opposed to philosophy for doctors – by investigating the problems that form the core of the subject as it has evolved in the Western tradition. We do, however, target issues and challenges, and present them in a way that is interesting and relevant to students of medical disciplines.

For more information, including details on how to apply, see our Intercalated BSc pages.

  • Research training that leads to an individual project.
  • One-year programme leading to an intercalated BSc.
  • Teaching by experts in the field.

We will provide you with an understanding of some central issues in general metaphysics and epistemology, in particular issues concerning the ways in which the kind of objectivity possible in evaluative and ethical thought both resembles and differs from the kind of objectivity that is typical of the natural sciences. This will help you to develop different perspectives on problems you may encounter in your professional life.
