This Philosophy of Education programme at the University College London (UCL) enables students to explore further the relevance of ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of mind and epistemology to contemporary educational issues and to bring philosophical thinking to bear on their own educational concerns including professional practice.
Students will gain a grounding in philosophical approaches, becoming part of a lively community of Masters and doctoral students from a wide range of backgrounds.
Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as teachers and senior school leaders, while others have jobs as university lecturers and researchers.
Graduates can also be found working as staff in policy think tanks and as youth workers or in adult and informal education.
