The degree requires one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study. It includes a coursework component as well as a dissertation. The coursework component is divided into taught modules. Full-time students have to select three modules among those offered in the year they are taking the course. Part-time students choose two modules for their first year and one module for their second year (in the second year they also write their dissertation). For administrative purposes, the dissertation is also considered a module and is, in fact, the only compulsory module for this degree.
In addition to the seminars for each of the taught modules, there is also a Core Seminar for the students taking this degree. This provides a forum for acquiring essential background in philosophy and psychopathology, and for discussing fundamental problems at the intersection of those domains. The Core Seminar is offered every week during term (with the exception of reading week) in term 1 and 2 only.
Minimum upper 2:1 (or equivalent) undergraduate degree, and an interest in and aptitude for the subject.
