MA - Reasoning
Philosophy at Kent prides itself on the flexibility of its programmes. Students are able to negotiate their own paths of study through a full range of mixed level modules and specialist seminars that reflect the research interests of members of staff.
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.
This MA programme offers a selection of topics related to reasoning and inference. It covers areas such as cognitive science and artificial intelligence (AI); scientific, mathematical, logical, causal and inductive reasoning; philosophy of mind, logic and language.
The programme is ideally suited to students with philosophical training who would like to pursue their undergraduate interests yet develop skills that make them attractive to a broad range of employers, or who would like the advanced training required for a PhD in this area. The flexibility of this programme enables you to negotiate your own path of study through a range of topics. You can focus exclusively on philosophical topics or can study reasoning-related topics in psychology, computing, statistics, law, social policy, biosciences and history.
