Course Summary

Philosophy at the University of Glasgow is thriving. Our vibrant research environment includes an active community of postgraduate students and engaged staff who are internationally recognised for their contributions to a wide range of philosophical debates. Our research in recent Anglo-American philosophy and the philosophy of mind was recently commended as world leading. Current and recent PhD students have worked on Anglo-American philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, and philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, philosophy of perception, philosophy of religion and political philosophy. A Doctor of Philosophy may be awarded to a student whose thesis is an original work making a significant contribution to knowledge in, or understanding of, a field of study and normally containing material worthy of publication.
