Course content

You will explore the key issues in the fields of Philosophy of Religion and Ethics – for example: Are there shared human values? How do we negotiate different belief systems in pluralistic societies? Is there a conflict between science and religion? Do people with different religious views have the same morals? Is life without God meaningless? You will be taught by a vibrant community of philosophers, pursuing original research on a wide range of topics on which expert supervision is available.

You will study six modules in total. Three are core Philosophy modules:

  • Research Skills and Methods
  • God, Freedom and the Meaning of Life
  • Global Ethics or Global Bioethics

You will then choose three optional modules.

MA students will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation.
