The Department of Philosophy
The Department of Philosophy at Durham has been ranked in the top of the 50 QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019. We are an open and friendly department, which accommodates work in both ‘analytic’ and ‘Continental’ Western philosophical traditions. We have the third highest employability rate among all of the Departments in Durham University with 94% of Philosophy leavers from Durham University securing employment and/or going on to further study within six months of graduating in 2016/17.
Our home on Old Elvet (pictured above) includes our department library, common room, post-graduate study room and our own garden. The department is also home to the Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society (CHESS).
