The Institute of Philosophy offers a comprehensive range of BA, MA, MPhil and PhD degrees. Viewed collectively, our undergraduate and post-graduate degrees aim to familiarise students with the historical traditions of philosophy as well as with contemporary movements in English-speaking and Continental Philosophy so that they are able to tackle the fundamental areas of philosophical research. All its programmes are taught in English. Courses are taught by means of lectures and seminars, while doctoral study is based around meetings with a supervisor.
The one-year Master of Arts in Philosophy programme aims to develop students' knowledge of philosophy by exposing them to more detailed study of the central issues of the subject, and by equipping them with the requisite research skills needed to proceed to a higher degree.
This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
