Philosophy at Kent prides itself on the flexibility of its programmes.
Students are able to negotiate their own paths of study through a full range of mixed-level modules and specialist seminars that reflect the research interests of members of staff.
We offer a wide variety of topics and modules, in all areas of philosophy. Our department is a place of academic brilliance, friendly exchange, intellectual excitement and diversity. In our weekly departmental research seminar, colleagues and philosophers from other universities present their current work, and in our thriving student-run graduate seminar, students discuss their ideas with peers and members of staff. We host a Centre for Reasoning and are connected to the Aesthetics Research Group, both offering their own weekly research seminars.
This programme offers you the opportunity to develop your independent study and research skills through a combination of subject modules within the School of European Culture and Languages. In addition, as part of your programme you have the opportunity to improve your English language competence with dedicated English and Academic Skills for Humanities modules offered by Kent International Pathways.
