Applied Philosophy

The MRes in Applied Philosophy is a distance-learning programme that is divided into a 60 credit taught part and a Dissertation of 120 credits amounting to up to 30,000 words in total.

It is designed to build a bridge between the world of academic study and the "real" world of practical affairs and day to day life, especially for those working in areas which will benefit from the development of a dynamic relationship between theory and practice, such as criminal justice, education welfare, health services, housing welfare, social work and youth services.

Candidates will consider the significance of issues in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethical theory and political philosophy to questions of practical concern such as abortion, euthanasia, suicide, freedom of speech, sexual and racial discrimination, debates surrounding reproductive technologies, genetic enhancement, criminal punishment, the environment, world hunger, and the welfare of future people.

Thus you will be able to choose from a range of modules covering a variety of different themes and specialist areas. The modules are built around the research specialisms of our academic staff all of whom are research active and regularly publish their thoughts and ideas.

We also offer this programme as a Postgraduate Certificate (students complete 60 taught credits) and a Postgraduate Diploma (students complete 120 taught credits)
