While some students take Philosophy as their main or second area in the B.A. programme of studies, many others choose it as a subsidiary subject in conjunction with their main course outside the Faculty of Arts, or else follow elective or optional study-units offered by our Department. These include students reading Law, European Studies, Theology, Psychology, Journalism and Communications, Creativity and Innovation, International Relations, Social Work and Social Policy, and Mathematics.

We strongly feel that practically all students can benefit from doing at least some Philosophy at the University. Of its nature and as it is taught by our department, philosophy necessitates independent but coherent thinking and concern for values, qualities that are required of any candidate reading for an academic degree as well as by all present and future members of the knowledge society.

This is what some of our academic visitors had to say about our Department:

“The Department of Philosophy at the University of Malta offers an impressive syllabus, given the relatively small size of the Department. The syllabus covers a wide range of areas and provides a well-rounded philosophical education. It meets with the ‘benchmarks’ determined for the teaching of philosophy in UK institutions. The history of the subject is well covered, and students are acquainted with both Anglo-American and Continental traditions in modern philosophy”

§  David E. Cooper, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Durham University



“Students who study philosophy at the University of Malta benefit from the efforts of a superbly committed staff.  This is a department which maintains exemplary standards in all areas.  The excellent pedagogical effort of colleagues consistently facilitates extremely high standards.  […] There is both good provision of core content and of the kind of philosophical variety needed to ensure students are intellectually challenged and stimulated as well as being provided with a thorough grounding in philosophy.  The continued synthesis of the analytic and European traditions of philosophy is worthy of being singled out for praise.”

§  Peter Sedgwick, Reader in Philosophy, Cardiff University
