We offer a wide variety of topics and modules, in all areas of philosophy. Our department is a place of academic brilliance, friendly exchange, intellectual excitement and diversity. In our weekly departmental research seminar, colleagues and philosophers from other universities present their current work, and in our thriving student-run graduate seminar, students discuss their ideas with peers and members of staff. We host a Centre for Reasoning and are connected to the Aesthetics Research Group, both offering their own weekly research seminars.
Philosophy is part of the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL), which embraces eight other disciplines: Classical & Archaeological Studies; Comparative Literature; English Language and Linguistics; French; German; Hispanic Studies; Italian; and Religious Studies. This means that students enrolled on a postgraduate programme in Philosophy can draw on the excellent resources of a diverse team of teachers with expertise in many key areas of European culture.
Programme structure Our MA in Philosophy is designed for those who wish to broaden their study of philosophy and make a gradual transition to research. It is ideally suited to students with previous philosophical training who would like to widen their knowledge of topics, gain more training in philosophical methodology, and/or narrow down their interests of specialisation in preparation for an MPhil/PhD.
We offer a wide variety of topics and modules, in theoretical philosophy (mind, language, logic, epistemology, metaphysics), in moral philosophy (metaethics, normative ethics, political philosophy), and in history of philosophy (ancient philosophy, modern philosophy, 20th-century analytic philosophy). All our MA students are offered supervision by staff members.
Our graduate seminars  are divided into two streams: Theoretical Reasoning, and History of Philosophy and Practical Philosophy. Each stream covers a mix of topics, which vary each year in line with current staff research interests. Recent topics include paradoxes, game theory, war crimes and Derek Parfit's On What Matters. All MA students are expected to attend both streams. Students can choose which topics to write essays on, and can attend our undergraduate lectures to supplement their learning.
We also hold a fortnightly Graduate Training Seminar, where students (both PhD and MA) present and discuss their work. We also use these seminars to offer skills workshops for those looking to go on to an academic career, covering topics such as publishing and going onto the job market.
