Philosophy

This programme is for students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those converting into philosophy from another subject at undergraduate level. For philosophy graduates, it will consolidate and augment their existing knowledge, and provide a firm foundation for subsequent independent research. For conversion students, there is a General Philosophy module which is designed specifically to introduce them to key texts, concepts and arguments from right across the philosophical spectrum: by means of this module, in conjunction with their own choices of optional subjects, such students will also be prepared for further research in philosophy.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in philosophy or any other field; conversion students should show evidence of an interest in and aptitude for the subject.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through coursework, examinations and a dissertation.
