About the Department  The Philosophy Department at Durham University is a centre for world-leading research in a wide range of fields, grouped into four research clusters: 

1.    Aesthetics, Ethics and Politics; 
2.    History of Philosophy;
3.    Mind, Language and Metaphysics; and 
4.    Science, Medicine and Society. 

It leads several interdisciplinary research centres, including the Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society, the Durham Centre for Ancient and Medieval Philosophy and the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease. Collaborative interdisciplinary research is at the heart of our research and impact strategy, as is our very strong performance in external research funding.

At both postgraduate and undergraduate level, students can choose from a wide range of topics spanning the whole discipline of philosophy, and also the history of science and medicine. Admissions to the Department’s undergraduate programmes is competitive, and we consistently perform strongly in national rankings for philosophy. We have one of the largest PhD programmes in the UK, and many of our students go on to pursue highly successful academic careers.

Benefitting from strong student recruitment, the Department has expanded significantly in recent years, investing in key research areas to create concentrations of expertise that will catalyse the development of our ideas. We are using this opportunity to create a scholarly community that is open, representative, and diverse: our commitment to this is expressed through the work of the Department’s Diversity and Inclusion Group, and our recent Athena Swan Bronze award.
