Join the philosophical debate!
What is special about our department is the way in which we involve students in research right from the start.
We take research-led teaching seriously, so whether you are an first semester undergraduate, in the middle of your MA, or working on your PhD thesis, all our philosophy events are open to you. We organize a host of different events throughout the year. UBT Philosophy is a place where you can actually do philosophy.
