at our Open Days
In the Department of Philosophy you are encouraged to ask the fundamental questions about the nature of life, to see things in new ways, and be critical and creative, in readiness for a flourishing and enriching life.
We equip you with skills in reasoning, problem solving and communication, all of which are highly sought by employers. We encourage you to be flexible and proactive by engaging you in debates and group discussions.
We promote diversity in the discipline, fostering links with other departments, as well as subscribing to the British Philosophical Association (BPA)/Society for Women in Philosophy (SWIP) Good Practice Scheme to encourage the representation of women in philosophy.
The Department also subscribes to the British Philosophical Association's environment guidelines.
