Welcome to Philosophy at York. We bring together engaging teaching and world-class research in an informal, friendly setting. We're ranked 13th in the UK for Philosophy (Complete University Guide 2019), and scored 95% student satisfaction for our single-subject Philosophy course (Unistats: NSS 2018). 

In the most recent assessment of UK research, 96% of the Department’s work was judged to be “of international standard” (REF 2014). We are also part of the British Philosophical Association's Good Practice Scheme to support the representation of women in philosophy.
