This programme is designed for students 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.
The flexibility of this programme ensures that you are able to negotiate your own path of study through a range of modules which reflect the research specialisms and publications of the teaching staff who are nationally, and internationally, recognised experts in their fields.
