Overview

This degree gives you access to the very wide range of philosophical topics and expertise available in the Department. It’s great preparation for Philosophy research, as well as an attractive postgraduate course.

You’d attend a main seminar every week and study six philosophical areas, drawn from the research interests of staff. There’ll be a further three elective modules to study, involving regular graduate seminars and a lecture course, plus research and dissertation training.

Assessment for this programme is mostly by semester essay.

This 12-month programme consists of a number of one-semester taught modules, the two main seminar modules (Religion, Ethics and Practical Philosophy and Metaphysics, Language and Mind) and a two-semester research skills module (which includes such transferable skills as logic/reasoning and presentation of papers), and a supervised dissertation over the summer. Students take two elective modules in the first semester and one in the second semester, or vice versa.

Career opportunities

Our programmes aim to equip students with the general and widely applicable analytical, argumentative and problem solving skills and abilities valued by employers. Some of our postgraduate students have gone on to a career in academic Philosophy, but a variety of careers are open to those obtaining postgraduate Philosophy degrees, including business, management, the law, the media, the arts, computing, the Civil Service and teaching.
