This programme draws on our long-established strengths in research and teaching in Continental Philosophy. It is distinctive in offering an unusually broad range of module options specifically in this area of philosophy, covering major figures and themes, as well as more specialised or less mainstream topics. Because of the breadth of our expertise in this area, whichever module option you choose, you will be taught by world leaders in their respective fields.
This MA gives you a high degree of flexibility over the modules you can select. We offer a broad selection of taught modules in 19th and 20th century Continental Philosophy, as well as in other areas of philosophy.Unlike many other postgraduate programmes, you choose your coursework and dissertation proposal without any further restriction on your selection of philosophy module options other than the requirement to take at least 40 CATS worth of options from the field of Continental Philosophy. You may decide to study for the MA as a self-standing degree, or as an entry route into PhD research (including the option for 1+3 study). Teaching is led by nine academics in our Department, who can support you to frame a proposal for further doctoral study if you achieve good results on the course.
