Course content

A flexible programme that allows you the opportunity to specialise in your area of interest, our MA enables you to take your studies and passion for philosophy to a more advanced level. The course will help you to develop sophisticated analytical skills. You will be taught in small groups in a stimulating environment and have the opportunity to choose from a range of challenging modules. Teaching draws directly on the extensive and world-leading research expertise of staff within the Department of Philosophy. You can choose your own pathway through the course, and will also be encouraged to engage with our vibrant research culture. All MA students undertake a dissertation, which enables them to pursue in depth a research question of their choice.
