About Philosophy at University of East Anglia (UEA)


Philosophy at UEA has a dynamic, highly distinctive research profile: specialisms at various frontiers of the subject include: philosophy and the arts, (literature, film, music) philosophy and linguistics, environmental philosophy and metaphilosophy, (epistemology and methodology of philosophy). One-on-one supervisions are complemented by the Philosophy Postgraduate Research Training Workshop, a research skills module for all Masters' students.


The programme has an undiluted Oxbridge format, with teaching structured around one-on-one tutorials. Students typically take four supervised study modules consisting of three such tutorials each. Each module involves doing research on individually agreed topics from one area of the subject, under the guidance of a member of academic staff with results presented in essays. It is also possible to take language training, (Ancient Greek, German for philosophical research purposes) in place of a module(s). A dissertation is also written on a topic chosen by the student.


The department Philosophy at UEA is a leading centre for research on Wittgenstein, with members also working in the areas of ancient philosophy, early modern philosophy and Kant, phenomenology, and the history of analytic philosophy. Experts and graduates alike are constantly in touch with students, such as a weekly guest lectures and workshops which add to the vibrancy of this course.


The Master of Research is a training programme designed to prepare students for independent research, either as part of a pathway leading to the PhD or to give students a cutting edge on the job market.
