We are unique in Scotland in specialising in continental philosophy - we teach primarily through reading and discussing key texts from the European tradition. Our courses are designed to explore the role of philosophy in the twenty-first century.
Choose from a range of courses and levels of study:
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 philsophy.
Our MLitt courses seek to overcome the idea that philosophy is split between two cultures - one belonging to the world of science, the other, the world of the arts and humanities - by exploring both of these strands.
We are strongly research orientated. Our staff are all very active in research and we are committed to promoting a first class research culture dedicated to producing research of the highest quality in a supportive and stimulating environment.
