Course Summary

The research interests cover a wide variety of topics; including ethics and global public health; ethics, war and terror; poverty and financial exclusion; and ethics of borders and immigration. The PhD is the most advanced research degree. It requires you to undertake independent research (under the expert supervision of an academic member of staff) that leads to a dissertation of up to 80,000 words on a subject of your choice. Within the Department of Philosophy, we offer promising candidates the opportunity to carry out research and explore the leading ethical issues of our time in a dynamic and reflective way. You can study in traditional PhD format, or through our PhD by Papers option. The PhD by Papers format is an option for all Birmingham Global Ethics PhD students, not a separate course of study. So if you are interested, please simply apply for the Global Ethics PhD as normal.
