Course content

This course will suit students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and those converting to philosophy from another subject (for instance, psychology) at undergraduate level. For philosophy graduates, it will consolidate and augment their existing knowledge, with a special emphasis on philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind. For conversion students, it is designed to introduce them to key texts, concepts and arguments from right across the philosophical spectrum.

Key benefits

  • Open to Philosophy graduates, but also fully accessible to those converting in from other subjects (such as Psychology).
  • Trains students to a high level in Philosophy of Psychology and related fields in a short period of time.
  • Offers a wide selection of other optional topics, both current and historical, covering the entire philosophical spectrum from aesthetics to logic and everything in between.
  • Located in the heart of London.

Description

Over the cours of the degree you will develop skills and knowledge through our modules and your own research. Sixty of your 180 credits on the course will come from a dissertation of around 10,000 words, on an approved topic in the philosophy of psychology/mind, to be completed over the summer at the end of the course. If you have satisfactorily completed the course up to the point of the dissertation you may exit the programme early and recieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Philosophy of Psychology on the basis of your 120 credits. 

Our required modules will give you a deep understanding in the field, and you will then be free to choose the remaining 40 credits from our list of master's courses, or, with permission, through relevant modules in other departments. For students who have previously taken a philosophy degree, this will allow you to explore and deepen your expertise

Course purpose

This programme is suited both to students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those converting to philosophy from another subject (for instance, psychology) at undergraduate level. For philosophy graduates, it will consolidate and augment their existing knowledge, with a special emphasis on philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind, and it will provide a firm foundation for subsequent independent research in this area. 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 more specialised studies in the philosophy of psychology, such students will also be prepared for further research.

Course format and assessment

We will teach you through lectures and seminars.

You will be assessed through a combination of examination and coursework , as well as a dissertation.
