Philosophy is a fascinating subject which explores and challenges the concepts and assumptions which frame the way we think, speak and act.
It examines topics like how we should live and treat others, and concepts such as human nature, knowledge, truth and freewill.
At the University of Hertfordshire we offer undergraduate and postgraduate Philosophy degrees.
All of our Philosophy teaching staff also carry out research. Philosophy achieved excellent results in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), with 19% of our research being judged 4 star ('world-leading') and a further 47% of it being judged 3 star ('internationally excellent'). All staff in Philosophy were submitted for this exercise.
Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire ranked 14th out of 48 universities in the Guardian University league table 2016.
We are proud to be a strong, vibrant department dedicated to not only teaching you about Philosophy, but also teaching you to do Philosophy and enjoy where it takes you.
