About us

School of the Arts

The School of the Arts provides world-class teaching and cutting-edge research in deep and creative areas of human meaning - Art and Aesthetics, Architecture and Design, Film, English Literature, English Language, Communication and Media Studies, Music, Ethics, Philosophy and Religion. We offer you a doubly rich environment: externally, following Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008 and in collaboration with leading arts institutions such as Tate Liverpool, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, FACT, The Reader Organisation, The Playhouse and Everyman Theatres, and National Museums Liverpool; and internally, to a rich inter-disciplinary setting that brings support, sharing and stimulus to a wide variety of postgraduates, with links to further initiatives in creativity, health and well being.


We're a friendly community of students and staff working together to discover and explore wide-ranging philosophical ideas and schools of thought.

Our Department offers a distinctive combination of unusual philosophical diversity in a close-knit and friendly atmosphere, with excellent staff student relations.
