Develop analytical rigour and critical reasoning
Do we have any knowledge of the external world? Does time flow? What is a work of art? By studying philosophy you will develop analytical rigour and the ability to criticise and reason logically, and to apply these skills to questions like these.
Short courses for adult learners
Philosophy offerings include introductory courses, political philosophy, critical reasoning, ethics and bioethics, philosophy of religion, and much more.
Many of our short courses, including flexible online courses, weekly classes (both in Oxford and online) and some summer schools, can be studied for credit, which means they can count towards a recognised qualification such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
