Course content

Are you interested in studying political, legal and moral philosophy to an advanced level? This MA encourages you to consider how normative analysis can be addressed to matters of public concern.

The programme brings together expertise from Law and Philosophy into a core module on Political and Legal Theory.

This distinctive, interdisciplinary approach is supported through further close co-operation with the Centre for Ethics, Law and Public Affairs, which is based in our Department. The course provides an advanced introduction to the central normative conceptions and the debates they have generated, which you can explore in more detail through a wide range of optional modules.

With a real-world focus, the course trains you to assess implications of different approaches for public policy, institutional design and the law. Our alumni consistently secure graduate- and professional-level jobs soon after graduation in a range of sectors, including politics and policymaking, NGOs, journalism, business and finance, law and academia.
