About Philosophy at University of Reading

An intensive but flexible research-based philosophy programme for graduates looking to further their studies.

Broaden your philosophical knowledge through a combination of classes, seminars, reading groups, lectures and guest speaker events, and focus your research into your chosen area of study. Our MRes programme is ideal preparation if you are considering undertaking future doctoral research.

The flexibility of our MRes programme enables you to pursue your interests. Structured into weekly MRes seminars where all students present their ongoing work to peers and academics, the course offers regular, individual supervision with expert members of staff in your chosen field.

Whether you're looking to further your studies or pave the way for a change of career, this course will provide you with valuable skills and the knowledge to succeed. You will gain a firm philosophical grounding and mastery of specialised areas of study, as well as the ability to critically engage with, and reflect upon, current philosophical debates.

Contributing to the interdisciplinary and academic environment of the Department, we run a number of events throughout the year dedicated to stimulating and fostering research. These include a full visiting speaker programme, a work-in-progress programme, a graduate seminar, a regular staff-student reading group, and the highly regarded annual Ratio Conference. Our dynamic student and staff community is a vital part of our department, and you will be supported throughout your studies by our dedicated teaching staff and friendly support staff.
