About

The Philosophy programme at Maynooth University will provide the students with a professional training in academic research in Philosophy, and thus enables them to contribute to national and international scholarship and to interdisciplinary co-operation.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The department aims to provide students with the opportunity to work independently under the supervision of members of staff who will provide detailed feedback and advice on the achieved works. The Department of Philosophy wishes to provide a high quality research experience and output, with integrated taught support for all students enrolled on the structured PhD programme. 

As part of this process, students on this programme will have acquired the philosophical methods that enable them to pursue studies and research independently according to their personal interests in the field. They will also be able to engage at an appropriate level with other professional scholars.

Career Options

Philosophy is not a qualification to do a particular job; rather it is a valuable component of general education. The expertise gained in Philosophy is of great value in many different careers. 

Philosophy is a good preparation for an academic career and for careers in journalism, law, radio, television and the media in general, and politics. Increasingly, philosophy graduates are being hired by large corporations, e.g. in roles such as management consultancy, as people who can approach problems from a new perspective. 

Philosophy graduates from Maynooth University  are valued for their quick intelligence, their ability to reason clearly and independently and their ability to take an overview on the problem or situation confronting them.
