The Department of Philosophy offers a stimulating research environment for our graduate students, with distinguished visiting speakers coming to the University of Reading each term.
We also regularly host major conferences,
including an annual conference sponsored
by our home journal Ratio. Being within
easy reach of Oxford and London, you can
also take advantage of the wealth of
philosophy events at these two leading
centres of research.
Our Department is dynamic, forging links
with other departments and universities
and devising new ways of improving the
education and experience of our students.
There is a range of great opportunities for
collaboration with staff and other students
at regular seminars, reading groups and
events organised by the student-run
Philosophy Society. We are also well known
for our friendly, collaborative atmosphere,
in which students and staff get to know one
another on an individual basis.
