Our Masters courses are a product of the broad and contemporary interests of our academic research community.

MA Philosophy

The MA in Philosophy provides a grounding for advanced work in philosophy.  It is designed to cater both for those with an interest in doing an MA for its own sake and for those intending to go on to pursue a PhD.  This programme will enable you to acquire a thorough training in research skills alongside the detailed study of the central works of philosophy.  You will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of options covering particular areas and particular philosophers.  You can select your own pathway or adopt a pick-and-mix approach to your studies.

Missed our Open Day?

Don't worry, there are other opportunities to come and see us including our Postgraduate Visit Afternoons.

Whether you're considering your options, or you’ve already applied for one of our courses, a Visit Afternoon is a great way to see us on campus and find out more about your area of interest.
