MA in Philosophy

This Master’s degree is ideal if you have done at least some philosophy in your first degree and want to take your studies to another level. It is also an ideal stepping stone towards a PhD. The MA requires more independent thinking than an undergraduate degree. Faking nature: development and restoration thesis provides an insight into philosophical study at postgraduate level.

The MA programme is studied part time, and is normally completed over two years, starting in October. It consists of two parts. Part 1 is a 60 point module studied over 31 weeks. Part 2 (which includes a dissertation) is a 120 point module studied over 47 weeks.

More information, including topics covered, details of how to apply for a place, and important guidance on preparedness, can be found on the MA in Philosophy pages.
