Degrees Offered:

Philosophy of Mental Disorder

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MSc in Philosophy of Mental Disorder is the result of a collaboration between the King's Philosophy Department and the King's Institute of Psychiatry. The course is taught jointly by these two institutions and, for this reason, it is genuinely and helpfully interdisciplinary. The course provides a unique opportunity to examine issues arising at the intersection of philosophy and the theory of mental disorder, and more generally to examine the philosophical and conceptual problems raised by the study of the human mind. This MSc is intended primarily for students with a degree in philosophy or psychology or a qualification in psychiatry. But applications from people with other degrees (e.g. in anthropology, sociology, natural sciences, political sciences, etc.) are also welcome.
