Master's Degrees in Philosophy

PPR offers postgraduate study in philosophy via a range of taught master's degree programmes.

You can study philosophy on its own or in combination with other subjects, including Politics, Religious Studies, and Management. Our taught master's programmes allow students both to develop their philosophical knowledge and expertise, and to develop a range of employment-relevant skills. They also provide a solid grounding for further postgraduate research in philosophy at doctoral level.
