This joint masters programme offers a unique international and interlinguistic orientation in current philosophical work. The course is taught by leading figures in the field of contemporary European philosophy, based at two of its most significant and productive institutions. Full-time students spend the autumn semester at Kingston's Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), and the spring semester at the University of Paris 8 (Saint-Denis).

As a joint European programme, this MA is longer than a standard British MA. Taken over 18 months (from September to the following March), it involves a more specialised study and a more extensive MA dissertation.
-In preparation for the term in Paris, you can take advantage of free French language tuition in the autumn term through our Kingston Language Scheme.
-You will benefit from high levels of staff contact from versatile and internationally recognised teaching staff with a range of interests.
-The CRMEP is arguably the UK's most stimulating and prestigious provider of MA teaching in the field. The philosophy department at Paris 8 was established by Michel Foucault in the aftermath of May 1968 and was shaped by many of the thinkers (Deleuze, Rancière, Badiou, etc) who studied there. Today, Paris 8 remains lively, mindful of its legacy and marked by a distinctive political culture.

What will you study?

In the autumn term, which is taught at Kingston, you will study the Contemporary European Philosophies core module and choose an option module from the full range of philosophy courses offered at Kingston University. In the spring term, which is taught in Paris, you will study modules chosen from those offered by the philosophy department at Paris 8 (including two modules offered by a visiting member of Kingston's CRMEP). You will also take a 'special study' module, based on close engagement with a major contemporary thinker of your choice.

You can write your dissertation in London or Paris, in English or French. Preparation of the dissertation lasts around eight months and involves research skills workshops, group tutorials and individual supervision.

Assessment

Short exercises, essays, independent study, research skills workshops, and a 20,000-word dissertation.

Course structure

Please note that this is an indicative list of modules and is not intended as a definitive list.
