Research is an integral part of the OU’s Department of Philosophy and directly informs the design of our modules. In the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 97% of submitted outputs were ranked as internationally recognised or better, with 40% being internationally excellent, and 7% world-leading.
Members of the department belong to one or more of our three research groups:
The research groups host regular individual or joint research events such as workshops, conferences, and the Departmental Seminar Series.
The department has an active and enthusiastic programme of graduate study and offers full-time and part-time doctoral supervision.
