About

As a postgraduate researcher in the Global Ethics programme from University of Birmingham, you will benefit from its interdisciplinary approach and diverse range of expertise in justice and development, environment and health, gender justice, and conflict and security. 

Overview

Our researchers cover a variety of topics, from climate change to migration, and our students have very varied backgrounds. Postgraduate researchers will be encouraged to participate in seminars, conferences, and reading groups in the Philosophy department.

You can study in traditional PhD format, or through our PhD by Papers option. Rather than writing a single book-like thesis examining a single topic, a PhD by Papers gives you the choice of writing a thesis comprising of several separate (though thematically unified) papers, in the style of philosophy journal articles.

You can study the Global Ethics programme from University of Birmingham full-time or part-time, on campus or by distance learning. The College of Arts and Law is experienced in delivering high-quality distance learning to students all over the world.
