New Distance PhD in Continental Philosophy

Via Daily Nous. Count me as skeptical about such a venture, though UK PhD programs are quite hands-off anyway. The program is at Staffordshire, which as far as I can tell, has two philosophers heading up the programDouglas Burnham and David Webb. (Here’s the About Us page, which spends more time on the wonders of Staffordshire, which would-be distance PhDs might never see, than about the program itself.)  The department already has an online MA. 


  1. Having lived right next door to the Staffs Uni campus for a while, it’s probably a good place for distance learning. Wouldn’t recommend living there.

    1. Ha yes. Well when they talk about the people who were once there (Darwin’s grandparents!) then you know it’s not known for its dramatic beauty.
