Philosophy and Sociology

UHI Moray


Main campus, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)


The BA (Hons) Philosophy and Sociology covers a range of approaches. Sociology investigates the dynamics of the social world we live in. Philosophy is an in-depth study of the development of the Western intellectual tradition.

Philosophy seeks to understand, and particularly to question, ideas concerning the nature of reality, value and experience that play a pervasive role in understanding the world and ourselves. The philosophy discipline focuses on problematic concepts, such as existence, reason and truth, which occur in every sphere of human enquiry, but more specifically on problematic concepts that belong to particular areas of thought and practice, such as politics, economics, religion, science and ethics.
