About the Department of Philosophy

We aim to bring together stimulating teaching and original research in an informal, friendly setting.

We offer undergraduate programmes - both single and joint honours with a range of other subjects - alongside taught and research-based postgraduate degrees.

While staff have a range of interests, our main research strengths fall in five areas:

  • History of Philosophy
  • Practical Philosophy
  • Mind and Reason 
  • Art and Literature
  • Philosophy of Religion

Browse our staff pages to read more about the interests of individual members of staff. 

The Board of Studies - which has student representatives - makes decisions about teaching and assessment in the Department. The external Advisory Board acts as a critical friend and sounding board, and provide access to networks and thinking outside the University.
