Philosophy

Discover our undergraduate courses, Masters and PhD degrees in philosophy.

Studying Philosophy at Sussex means combining the traditional with the alternative, and exploring a range of unexpected approaches to the basic questions of philosophy. You’ll get to study both analytic philosophy and continental philosophy – an opportunity rare at other universities – and choose from options such as Islamic and feminist philosophy.

We also offer PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics), where all three subjects are taught by experts who are carrying out original and innovative research in areas including global politics and international trade.

From the University’s lively Philosophy Society to Brighton’s Philosophy Café, you’ll be stimulated by culture and debate. Our supportive community also encourages you to explore other subjects. This means you can follow your own interests – so you gain a range of transferable skills to prepare you for your future career.
