Introduction to BA Philosophy for Offer Holders

Venue: Online

Book your place

Come and join us for our BA Philosophy programme Offer Holder afternoon.

BA Philosophy programme is a part of the School of Historical Studies.

You will have the opportunity to chat with our staff Dr Sophia Connell and find out more about the programme.

For her research, Sophia works broadly to consolidate and improve philosophical engagement with Aristotle’s biological corpus, particularly the Generation of Animals, Parts of Animals and Historia Animalium. Her work shows how serious engagement with these relatively neglected texts throws new light on many aspects of Aristotle’s philosophy. 

On Birkbeck’s BA Philosophy you will explore ancient answers and new perspectives on our place in the world. It also provides you with a thorough grounding in the central areas of philosophy, while giving you highly transferable skills such as:

  • independent judgement
  • critical thought
  • the ability to analyse complex ideas and arguments.

Birkbeck is a leading centre for philosophical research in the UK. All of our established members of academic staff are active researchers, and our excellence in both teaching and research is consistently reflected in UK and international surveys.

Birkbeck teaching takes place in the evening, leaving you free to study, volunteer or explore London during the day.

This event will be online.
