Department of Philosophy

Study With Us

Durham Philosophy department is amongst the most prestigious departments in the UK, and we pride ourselves on our excellence in research and teaching. The Durham Philosophy community is a lively, friendly group of people including undergraduates, postgraduates and staff, committed to the pursuit of philosophical knowledge and understanding. When you study philosophy at Durham, you will be given the opportunity to learn many skills that your future employers will value, including how to analyse different kinds of evidence, how to detect the strength of arguments presented by experts, how to work collaboratively to solve difficult problems, and how to write with clarity and precision. Our undergraduates and postgraduates publish their own journals, and as well as joining their editorial team, you can gain experience as a librarian, archivist or research assistant.

Our home on Old Elvet includes our department library, common room, post-graduate study room and our own garden. As an undergraduate or postgraduate here you will be an integral part of life in the Department.
