¿Qué aprenderé?

The PhD gives you the opportunity to pursue a substantial, independent research project supervised by one of the leading lights in the field. With a graduate community of around 30 students, you will be part of an exciting and vibrant research culture.

Introducing your degree

In addition to one-to-one supervisions, you will have the opportunity to present your work at the weekly postgraduate research seminar, led by a member of the philosophy department. You will take part in staff-led graduate classes, participate in staff-postgraduate reading groups, and benefit from other exciting events, such as visiting speaker seminars, workshops, conferences and masterclasses. In recent years we have held grants on a variety of topics, most notably a €1.2+ million ERC grant on the metaphysics of persons, pregnancy and motherhood, as well as grants on repeatable artworks, Nietzsche, the nature of normativity, and more. We have hosted numerous major conferences, such as the British Society for Ethical theory annual conference, the British Postgraduate Philosophical Association annual conference, the British Wittgenstein Society Annual Conference and the British Society for Aesthetics graduate conference. Students are encouraged to take part in all of the above as well as to organize conferences and workshops themselves.

The Philosophy Department at Southampton is a vibrant and welcoming place to do research, boasting a wide range of specialisms. In the last REF (national ranking of research institutions), Southampton was ranked 4th in the UK for producing research which was world-leading or internationally excellent. Among the many subjects we offer PhD supervision in are the following: History of Philosophy (especially 19th Century German Philosophy); Aesthetics; Wittgenstein and Early Analytic Philosophy; Ethics; Epistemology; and Metaphysics.

In addition to specialist seminars and guided tutorials, students will have access to such topics as academic writing and conference organisation. If students have gaps in their knowledge at the outset of the research programme, they can gain additional grounding by joining one of the taught Masters programmes.

Career opportunities are wide ranging and varied. A PhD in Philosophy from Southampton is an excellent preparation for an academic career. The transferable skills, such as critical awareness; cultural awareness; communication and presentational abilities; deadline and project management are highly valuable for a wide range of professions which include teaching, arts administration, journalism and local and national government administration.
