The School has 15 full-time, permanent faculty (academic staff), offering a wide variety of expertise, including analytic philosophy, contemporary European traditions, as well as ancient and medieval philosophy. There is a vibrant graduate student community of roughly 25 MA students, 5 MLitt students, and 25 PhD students in any given year: see here for a list of current research students, with their research topics. There are close links with the Department of Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin (TCD). The School are also home to the International Journal of Philosophical Studies and the international postgraduate philosophy journal Perspectives.
EU Fees are based on residency.
Normally a student should have an undergraduate degree with a strong philosophy component and an overall average of B in the philosophy courses. In addition, we normally require an MA in philosophy, or in some close subject such as political or literary theory. If the student is enrolled in an MA at the time of applying to UCD, we may make a conditional offer based on their performance to date.
Before applying, we strongly recommend that applicants peruse the School's staff members and their research interests. Ideally they will contact a staff member directly and discuss possible PhD projects informally. Alternatively, applicants can contact the PhD co-ordinator, Dr Markus Schlosser, to discuss possible ideas and supervisors. Applicants should note that some staff members may be on research leave in a given year, or may already have too many supervisory commitments to take on new PhD students. Applicants are still welcome to apply without contacting a staff member; if they meet all the admission criteria, the School will endeavour to find an appropriate supervisor for them.
