As the study of fundamental questions connected to reality, existence, the mind, language and thought, Philosophy at Kent is designed to develop your ideas, independent thought and problem-solving skills. You can engage with a number of themes, from ethics, metaethics, causation, social epistemology and political philosophy. The flexibility of this programme ensures that the student is able to negotiate his or her own path of study through a range of modules which take into account the your own background and reflects the research specialisms from the Department of Philosophy.
The programme aims to:
- provide you with the knowledge and skills to prepare you for academic philosophical study at MPhil/PhD level
- attract outstanding students, irrespective of race, background, gender, or physical disability from within the UK
- further the University’s International Strategy by attracting students, as above, from abroad as well
- enable you to deepen your knowledge of work in the key areas of theoretical and practical philosophy
- enable you to begin to specialise in your areas of interest
- provide you, consistent with point one above, with a transition from undergraduate study to independent research in philosophy
