Philosophy and Ethics

Research in philosophy and ethics will enable you to complete a survey of existing knowledge in your selected area. In the case of a PhD, you will also make an original contribution to knowledge. Many students follow a research degree out of personal interest. However, for some it is also an important step towards lecturing in higher education. The opportunities in philosophy allow you to move into an independent and detailed study of a specific area. This means taking your existing interests further, seeing where lines of thinking and argument lead, and working closely with your supervisors to develop higher-level philosophical research and writing skills. The School of Liberal and Performing Arts fosters a vibrant learning community. The staff have established an international reputation through their research, publications, research supervisions and presentations at academic conferences. Their expertise covers a wide range of topics in areas such as ethics, continental philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, Islamic philosophy, and the philosophy of religion and aesthetics.
