Philosophy - MRes
What is the nature of the mind? Do we have free will? Do we owe it to future generations to tackle climate change? Addressing issues of today, the past or what’s to come, philosophical questions are as relevant now as ever. On this research-focused course, you’ll engage in critical thinking, developing analytical and problem-solving skills that will enable you to understand, communicate and respond to different ideas and arguments effectively. Excellent preparation for further research or doctoral study, you’ll also be well placed for roles in business or government, marketing, policy-making, charitable organisations, education and training, or law.

Why study Philosophy at Keele University?
"Having graduated with a postgraduate philosophy degree at Keele University, I couldn’t recommend this establishment highly enough. My supervisor gave me ample room to develop my own ideas, whilst challenging me to improve them in constructive ways. The team of professors also helped my studies greatly with true care, diligence and patience. And to be honest, all of the staff and students were highly focused on academic excellence, inclusivity, and challenging preconceptions equally. The general atmosphere was one I’ll truly miss. So, if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to study here, I strongly suggest that you take up a course at this University. It will bring the best out of you"
Keele Postgraduate Association
Keele University is one of a handful of universities in the UK to have a dedicated students' union for postgraduate students. A fully registered charity, Keele Postgraduate Association serves as a focal point for the social life and welfare needs of all postgraduate students during their time at Keele.
Hugely popular, the KPA Clubhouse (near Horwood Hall) provides a dedicated postgraduate social space and bar on campus, where you can grab a bite to eat and drink, sit quietly and read a book, or switch off from academic life at one of the many regular events organised throughout the year. The KPA also helps to host a variety of conferences, as well as other academic and career sessions, to give you and your fellow postgraduates the opportunities to come together to discuss your research, and develop your skills and networks.
