Course content

On the MA Political Theory, you will develop your philosophical skills and apply them to some of the most urgent political and ethical controversies in contemporary life.

The masters is jointly taught by the Departments of Politics and Philosophy, two of the leading departments in the country, both of which have a large number of scholars addressing such issues.

This degree is designed for students with an interest in contemporary political philosophy, and includes topics such as rights, global justice, war, and democracy. It also reflects on the relevance of the thoughts of key figures in the history of political ideas, such as Plato, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Marx and Rawls.

You will contemplate, discuss and tackle the big questions about political life; and drawing on the expertise of these two outstanding departments, you will graduate with sharp skills of critical analysis and a deep understanding of political theory and philosophy.

The core themes that will be covered in this in this program are:
• Political philosophy
• Global justice
• Human rights
• Ethics
• Social justice
