About

The Philosophy programme of the University of Aberdeen is exploring philosophical concepts and theories ranging from continental and moral philosophy to epistemology, the history of philosophy, the philosophy of science, and the key areas of analytic philosophy.

Overview

At a Glance

Based in the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy, our research programmes in Philosophy are distinguished for research on history of philosophy, the philosophy of science (especially philosophy of biology), the history of ethics and political philosophy, and key areas of analytic philosophy: epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language.

Careers

Recent graduates of the Philosophy programme of the University of Aberdeen have gone on to enjoy successful careers, academic and otherwise. Some graduates hold full-time academic positions, while other Masters-level graduates have successfully taken up PhD study at Aberdeen or elsewhere. In general, careers that demand and reward analytical abilities and the capacity for clear expression of ideas will suit the accomplished Philosophy postgraduate well. Academic positions by no means exhaust such job prospects.
