Studying the MA in Philosophy will hone your ability to think clearly, reason logically, and develop your essay writing, research and analytical skills. You will put forward and evaluate arguments while exploring current debates and issues in social and political philosophy – engaging with a wide range of fascinating philosophy texts and areas of contemporary philosophical enquiry. You’ll begin by considering contemporary debates in philosophy on the theme of personhood, before examining issues such as citizenship, nationalism, and democracy. Finally, you’ll undertake a substantial piece of independent enquiry with a dissertation on a topic of your choice.
You must hold an honours degree to study for our MA in Philosophy course. Although your degree need not be in philosophy, you must have the basic skills expected of a graduate in that area.
