Philosophy doesn’t lead to a single specific career – it leads into a huge range of professions!
Our graduates go on to many different sectors including:
- business and finance
- commercial, industrial and public sector management
- marketing, sales and advertising
- academic research
We have a good track record of our MA students progressing to our Philosophy PhD.
"I have found that as I grow and mature my background in Philosophy serves me more and more. I know where to look when I need help dealing with the human condition, both in and out of the office."
Andrew Schafer, MPhil Philosophy 2009, now Product Specialist at Cloudflare
