University of Bristol
The MA in Philosophy will give you a thorough grounding in the core knowledge and skills required for philosophical research, while allowing you to pursue your own philosophical interests in depth. You will be taught and supervised by members of a friendly and informal department with an outstanding reputation in the UK and internationally. The MA is designed to give you the most benefit from the research expertise of individual members of staff. For more than half of the course, you will have one-to-one tutorials with a member of the department. You will be guided throughout by a personal tutor who will help you structure your course of study and choose the topics you wish to research. You will be an active member of our flourishing research culture and will be encouraged to participate in the three weekly research seminars on a wide range of philosophical issues. There is also a weekly postgraduate seminar, where you may present your own work before your peers, helping you to develop argumentative strategies in a supportive environment.
There are three core units and you will also take three optional units - either a taught seminar unit from a list of those available or a unit taught by individual tutorials on an agreed topic of your choice. Each optional unit is assessed by an essay of 5,000-6,000 words. Satisfactory completion of semesters one and two will allow you to progress to writing a dissertation of at most 15,000 words on an approved topic of your choice. The dissertation is your chance to produce an extended piece of philosophical research that can act as preparation for a graduate research degree. You will have supervisory meetings with a member of staff who will provide feedback on a draft of your work.
