Research

The study of philosophy provides you with the greatest of all transferable skills: the ability to form an argument.

Philosophy at Royal Holloway produces world-class research and world-class researchers. Departmental staff supervise research students and conduct enquiry in many fields. The research interests and accomplishments of individual members of staff and research students can be found through their personal research pages.

A regular research seminar series is organised by the Department.
