Philosophy at the University of Reading
'Really interesting course with dedicated lecturers ... the range of modules available is excellent ... small classes, allowing for good debates, and ease when discussing topics with lecturers ... friendly staff [and] interesting subjects ... lecturers are inclusive and approachable ... very good library resources ... the lecturers are passionate about philosophy.'
We are a thriving department in the the School of Humanities at the University of Reading.
At the undergraduate level, we offer two single-honours degree courses: BA Philosophy, and BA Ethics, Value and Philosophy. We also offer several joint-degree courses.
We offer an intensive and respected Master's degree programme, an MRes in Philosophy. In one year (full-time) or two years (part-time), you will develop your philosophical skills and knowledge beyond the undergraduate level. MRes students write several extended essays and a dissertation.
We also offer specialised research training degrees (MPhil and PhD).
