Course content

A degree geared both to philosophy graduates to consolidate and expand their philosophical grounding, and equally to conversion students to introduce them to key concepts, arguments, texts and techniques from across the philosophical spectrum, while also bringing them up to a high level in selected specialist areas.

Key benefits

  • Offers a wide selection of optional topics, both current and historical, covering the entire philosophical spectrum from aesthetics to logic and everything in between.
  • Open both to Philosophy graduates and to those converting into Philosophy from other subjects at undergraduate level, with pathways appropriate to their different needs.
  • Located in the heart of London.

Description

This course is suited both to students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those moving into philosophy from another subject at undergraduate level. If you are a graduate of philosophy, we will consolidate and improve your existing knowledge, and provide you with a firm foundation for subsequent independent research. If you are a conversion student, our General Philosophy module will introduce you to key texts, concepts and arguments from across the philosophical spectrum. This module, along with your choice of optional subjects, will prepare you for further research in philosophy.

Course purpose

This course is suited both to students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those converting into philosophy from another subject at undergraduate level.

For conversion students, there is a General Philosophy module which is designed specifically to introduce them to key texts, concepts and arguments from right across the philosophical spectrum: by means of this module, in conjunction with their own choices of optional subjects, such students will also be prepared for further research in philosophy.
