About the course

The new Postgraduate Certificate in Philosophy is a part-time course in philosophy aimed at graduates. Taught over a series of two-day teaching weekends and supporting one-to-one supervisions, the course explores a range of philosophical topics, from Ancient Philosophy to Existentialism. The first unit examines the origins of our notions of truth and reality by exploring a key text from the ancient world.
