Philosophy at the University of Reading

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 two intensive and respected Master's degree programmes, in Philosophy and in Ethics and Political Theory. In one year (full-time) or two years (part-time), you will develop your philosophical skills and knowledge beyond the undergraduate level. MA students write several extended essays and a dissertation.

We also offer specialised research training degrees.
