Course content

Students studying the MA in Philosophy choose from a range of specialised subject modules taught by research active academics, creating a particular pathway through the MA. The modules offered highlight the areas of particular strength at Nottingham — metaphysics, mind and knowledge, philosophy of language, ethics, aesthetics.

The MA is supplemented by a core 'Research Methods' module, designed to help students make the transition to postgraduate studies. Each student finishes their MA with a dissertation on a topic of their own choosing.

The course affords students who have studied philosophy at undergraduate level an opportunity to pursue the subject in greater depth. It prepares students who seek entry to a PhD programme, and accords therefore with the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s practice of offering funding packages for 1 (Masters) +3 (PhD) years. It is also suitable for students who do not intend to study for the PhD, but who wish merely to deepen their knowledge of philosophy and acquire some research skills.

Our Department of Philosophy provides excellent support for its research students, many of whom gain valuable teaching experience and publish their research whilst studying with us. Research students are first given the opportunity to lead undergraduate seminars and some, towards the end of their PhD research, have given lecture courses on their area of study.
