Course content

An exciting programme that both expands your knowledge of philosophy and deepens your philosophical skills. It's an opportunity to explore your passions while increasing your ability to shape lives, institutions, and society.

You'll work with our research active academics on a range of taught modules. These combine traditional areas such as ethics and metaphysics with emerging ideas, such as applied, environmental, and social philosophy. Within this framework of taught modules you'll be able to explore your particular interests.

You will also produce a dissertation: an in-depth piece of original work produced with support and guidance from a member of staff.
