Philosophy and Modern Languages First Year

There are currently no students at Hertford College in the first year of Modern Languages and Philosophy, but we hope to recruit at least one student (and ideally two) in the next admissions round.

Overall Philosophy Teaching Scheme

In most respects, joint degree programmes are just "divided down the middle", so you can broadly expect half your time to be spent on Philosophy every term (though I do make an effort to coordinate things with your other tutors whenever there are potential complications). Philosophy teaching this year is likely to be scheduled as follows, but note that this is subject to adjustment.

(Note that in this table, all underlined lectures are to be regarded as compulsory throughout. Other lectures are highly recommended – you should at least attend them to start with, and keep attending if they prove useful. All tutorials and college classes are, of course, compulsory)
