Faculty of Philosophy


RFB Under the Building Large 

Welcome to the Faculty of Philosophy in the University of Cambridge, one of the world’s leading institutions for teaching and research in philosophy. 

The Faculty is part of the University’s School of Arts and Humanities.

There are over 30 academic philosophers working in the Faculty. We have about 150 undergraduates and 50 postgraduate students.

The philosophical community in Cambridge is enhanced by the presence of philosophers in other departments and Faculties – for example, Classics, History and Philosophy of Science, Politics and International Studies. The Faculty of Philosophy has strong teaching and research links with these philosophers in the rest of the University.

Our undergraduate degree has a claim to be among the best single-subject philosophy degrees in the UK. Our postgraduate programmes have trained philosophers now working all over the world.
