Philosophy at Glasgow consists of a vibrant community of scholars tackling fundamental questions at the forefront of the limits of knowledge.

We offer the following research study options: PhD, MLitt and MPhil.

You will have the opportunity to engage with specialist research at the interdisciplinary Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience. The centre brings together philosophers and scientists to work on the nature of the mind, perceptual experience, virtual reality, emotions, and hedonics.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in the research activities of one of the largest and most active epistemology research communities in the world, the COGITO Epistemology Research Centre. COGITO brings together specialists in contemporary epistemology, as well as at the intersection of epistemology with philosophy of language and mind, ethics, political philosophy and philosophy of gender and race.

You may want to identify and contact a potential supervisor to discuss your research proposal before you apply.
