Nihilosophy Degree

The Degree in Nothing
The Original Degree in Nothing

Nihilosophy is the study and interpretation of Nothing. The Department of Nihilosophy at The Reginald Denke Foundation and Academy of Learning offers a unique and vibrant course for both undergraduate and postgraduate study. Students are encouraged to join the Nihilosophy society, nothing is actually studied or talked about at the Society and no actual meetings take place. Staff members have a very broad range of interests and expertise in nothing in particular. We do everything we can to provide nothing for all our students.

The Degree in Nihilosophy is a one-day reading course, or however long it takes for you to read our comprehensive forty-page book and sit the exam. The book, entitled ‘A Brief History of Nothing’  has a word-count in excess of 9500, and is designed specifically for students who have had no formal training in Nihilosophy. Once the book has been digested and there is nothing left to consume, the student may sit the online examination.

The Degree is not just for clever student types, it is also available to anyone who believes that nothing may assist them in their career or lifestyle. There are various reasons why you might want to do a Degree. Some of our students take the course because they want nothing to do, some are just curious to find out what it is like to study Nihilosophy. Others just want to enjoy learning about Nihilosophy, having not had the chance to do so before. The course can be studied part-time and is well suited to those who wish to study Nihilosophy for a couple of hours without leaving their home or employment in order to do so.
