Postgraduate degrees in Philosophy

Join our inclusive community of students and researchers.

With over thirty academic staff, we offer a broad range of specialist expertise.

We are particularly strong in philosophy of mind and psychology, epistemology, the philosophy of art and literature, moral, political, and legal philosophy, and 19th and 20th century post-Kantian European philosophy.

Taught courses

Our MA courses allow you to further explore themes from your undergraduate education and they are also suitable as preparation for PhD research.

Our excellence in research underpins our excellence in teaching philosophy at all levels. Our MA students consistently give us excellent ratings regarding teaching and learning, organisation and management, and resources and services. In the 2022 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, for example, we achieved a 90% overall satisfaction rating.

Research programmes

Our research courses suit students who thrive on independent study. You will explore a topic in depth as part of an active research community, supervised by experts.
