If you ever find yourself thinking about big questions beyond everyday experience - questions that may never have a single, final answer - then you would probably enjoy studying Philosophy.
Our courses are designed to explore the role of philosophy in the twenty-first century. Part of the School of Humanities, we are one of the main centres in the UK for the study of European Philosophy, specialising in Continental Philosophy at all levels of teaching and research.
We also provide expert supervision in the History of Philosophy and Philosophy of Science. We have a particular interest in interdisciplinary work linking Philosophy with the visual arts and literature, and in projects that involve thinking across the boundaries of philosophical traditions.
