Philosophy has been a core part of our curriculum since the Open University’s creation more than fifty years ago. The links below describe what we currently offer, and give a sense of what you can expect if you choose to study with us.
Most students currently studying philosophy with us at undergraduate level are working towards one of the four Honours Degrees described here. These have different module requirements, especially at Level 1, but all of them allow you to take our two core undergraduate philosophy modules (‘Exploring philosophy’ (A222) and ‘Key questions in Philosophy’ (A333)).
