What Will You Study

This flexible programme allows you to pursue and develop your interests across the whole range of philosophy. It builds on a core module, which introduces you to central disciplinary skills and knowledge, with choice from a wide range of optional modules in the various sub-disciplines.

You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay. Your modules will be taught in groups, or by one-to-one supervision. The programme culminates in the writing of a 20,000-word dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.

The flexibility of the programme means that it would suit your needs whether you intend to go on to a PhD, are stepping into philosophy from another discipline, or simply want to deepen your understanding of the subject to develop your career.
