Undergraduate

Our Department is one of the largest Philosophy departments in the country and among the most distinguished in the world - currently rated in the global top 10 (QS World Subject Rankings 2019). 

We offer study on a huge range of  topics - with no gaps in coverage from pre-Socrates to the present day. You’ll have the chance to study Indian Philosophy or Medieval Philosophy – an opportunity only available at a handful of UK universities- as well the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, political philosophy and ancient philosophy amongst others. 

Develop your philosophical ideas and arguments in a focused environment with plenty of feedback and discussion – our emphasis on small-group teaching ensures you acquire and hone the skills of critical thinking.  

You will also have the opportunity to join an annual residential weekend at Cumberland Lodge where students and academics come together to discuss ideas in an informal setting.
