Philosophy

The Master of Research is a research training programme designed to prepare students for independent research, either as part of a 1-plus-3 year route leading to the PhD or to give students a cutting edge on the job market. The programme has an undiluted Oxbridge format, with teaching structured around 1-on-1 tutorials. Students typically take four supervised study modules consisting of three such tutorials each. Each module involves doing research on individually agreed topics from one area of the subject, under the guidance of a member of academic staff. Results are presented in three essays. After feedback from the supervisor, two essays are revised and submitted for assessment. Students taking two such modules per semester will have fortnightly essay deadlines and tutorials. One or two supervised study modules can be replaced with appropriate taught modules from the menu of PHI MA modules. Alternatively, it is also possible to take language training (e.g. Ancient Greek, or German for philosophical research purposes) in place of one or two of the modules. 1-on-1 supervisions are complemented by the Philosophy Postgraduate Research Training Workshop, a research skills module for all Masters' students.
