Department of Philosophy

Postgraduate study

Each one of our postgraduate degrees is oriented towards a different level of philosophical development. You will be encouraged to develop skills that philosophy is especially good at fostering – skills of critical reading, analysis and presentation of arguments, and the ability to recognise and question fundamental assumptions. Each postgraduate degree can be taken for its own sake, as a basis for further study, or for the transferable skills with which it equips you.

We encourage our postgraduate students to attend the weekly meetings of the Philosophy Society. Postgraduate students also organise their own reading groups and form a lively philosophical community in their own right.
