Course content

At Sussex, we encourage diverse approaches to philosophical thinking. Our research-led approach to teaching means you’ll get to study study philosophical texts with us, the authors of the texts.

The unique structure of this MA allows you to specialise in continental or analytical philosophical traditions, or both. You’ll gain valuable skills for both professional work and further study:
  • critical thinking
  • analysing assumptions and arguments
  • undertaking original research
  • presenting your work to fellow students and faculty.

You’ll gain specialised knowledge of specific areas in contemporary philosophical thought and a comprehensive understanding of the major European historical tradition.
