Philosophy

Philosophy at Kent ranked 4th in the UK in the most recent National Student Survey (2014), with 98% student satisfaction.

Philosophy means ‘love of wisdom’, and, as an academic discipline, philosophy tries to answer fundamental questions concerning the nature of knowledge and existence, and how we ought to live. As a philosophy student at Kent, you will learn about core areas of philosophy, including metaphysics, logic, epistemology and ethics, combined with a range of specialist modules in subjects such as philosophy of science, philosophy of medicine, political philosophy and Wittgenstein.

Philosophy equips students with skills in reasoning, problem solving and communication, all of which are highly sought after by employers. We offer a range of undergraduate single and joint honours programmes, exciting opportunities for study abroad and a wide module selection. Our postgraduate programmes offer more specialist study supported by academics with track records in world-leading research.
