Join our inclusive community of students and researchers.
With over twenty academic staff, we offer a broad range of specialist expertise.
We are particularly strong in philosophy of mind and psychology, epistemology, the philosophy of art and literature, moral, political, and legal philosophy, and 19th and 20th century post-Kantian European philosophy.
Our MA courses allow you to further explore themes from your undergraduate education and they are also suitable as preparation for PhD research.
Our excellence in research underpins our excellence in teaching philosophy at all levels. Our MA students consistently give us excellent ratings regarding teaching and learning, organisation and management, and resources and services. In the 2018 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, for example, we achieved a 93% overall satisfaction rating.
You will be able to choose from a wide range of postgraduate modules. You will study in close contact with tutors and your peers and you will also be able to conduct independent research in your MA dissertation.
Our research courses suit students who thrive on independent study. You will explore a topic in depth as part of an active research community, supervised by experts.
