The Cambridge Philosophy Faculty provides a supportive environment for graduate studies in ethics and metaethics. Current and recent research projects have included topics from the metaphysics of morals to medical ethics. The Faculty currently has about half a dozen PhD students working in these areas.
Students who are interested in reading for the M.Phil, specializing in ethics or metaethics, or who want to do a Ph.D. in these areas, will need to apply through the University's Board of Graduate studies in the usual way (for more information, see the general Faculty of Philosophy pages about graduate study). Members of the Faculty with an interest in these areas may also be able to give advice and further information.
