The study of philosophy provides you with the greatest of all transferable skills: the ability to form an argument.
Other skills you will gain through studying Philosophy will be how to approach problems in a rigorous, analytical and critical way, and to communicate clearly and concisely in both speech and writing. Of course, our graduates also leave university with knowledge of the broad sweep of historical and contemporary thought.
The skills and knowledge you’ll attain will not only make you attractive to employers in a broad spectrum of careers, but prepare you for further advanced research in many areas.
Philosophy at Royal Holloway is based in the School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy. For more information about our alumni, graduate profiles and placements, take a look at the Department of Political and International Relations.
