Overview

Whether you’re destined for a philosophy PhD and a career in academia, research and teaching – or you simply want to extend your experience – this course will take your philosophical studies to the next level.

During your MRes year, you will work week-by-week on essays you choose and plan in collaboration with your tutor. You will work on three modules with at least two different tutors, and will undertake a core methodology module. This means you will be able to sample several areas within philosophy and work with different mentors, before choosing your dissertation topic.

The philosophy department at UEA is dynamic, friendly and committed to nurturing your emerging philosophical voice. Join our varied and inclusive research team, and you could work with us on philosophy of mind and language, political philosophy, philosophy of the social sciences, ethics, environmental philosophy and more. You might examine issues in philosophical method, or alternative approaches, such as experimental philosophy. UEA is a centre of excellence in Wittgenstein and we also have expertise in ancient philosophy, phenomenology and the history of analytic philosophy.

You’ll also have the opportunity to explore links between philosophy and literature or film, or the border with linguistics, political science, environmental science, mathematics, economics, or classical studies/ancient science.

Alongside your studies, you will attend a range of research events and seminars, including the postgraduate workshop (where you’ll share work in progress and feedback on other students’ work) and the research seminar (with distinguished visiting speakers from Britain and abroad). You might also join the regular Wittgenstein Workshop, or other specialised research meetings.
