Course content

Explore the ways in which artificial intelligence (AI) is shaping our lives and raising complex social, political, ethical and conceptual questions.

On this MA you can study issues in AI and investigate them through your own research. You can choose from a wide range of option modules. You'll also be able to create a substantial piece of research following your own interests, with our support. You'll develop valuable transferable skills in research, analysis, critical thinking and presentation which will be essential if you are thinking of continuing to study to PhD level. The skills that you develop on the course will also equip you for a range of careers, including work with technology ethics and policy, and technology consulting.

You’ll join our postgraduate community across both the Department of Philosophy and the Humanities Research Centre, and participate in our broad and diverse research culture.
