Pg Cert

The PgCert provides you with an opportunity to study at postgraduate level even if you are not initially considering pursuing an entire MA programme. The course can be taken as a stand-alone qualification, where you can focus on a particular area, or you can progress onto the relevant MA programme.

This programme aims to provide you with a secure knowledge of the major theories, concepts and issues relating to Philosophy in a variety of intellectual traditions and historical and contemporary contexts. You will gain a systematic understanding of a range of debates and discussions raised by past and present approaches to the philosophical reflection. In addition, the PgCert will equip you with the necessary skills appropriate to evaluating, analysing and interpreting both academic and practitioner approaches to Philosophy.

You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.

MA

This flexible programme allows you to pursue and develop your interests across the whole range of philosophy. It builds on a core module, which introduces you to central disciplinary skills and knowledge, with choice from a wide range of optional modules in the various sub-disciplines.

You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay. Your modules will be taught in groups, or by one-to-one supervision. The programme culminates in the writing of a 20,000-word dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.

The flexibility of the programme means that it would suit your needs whether you intend to go on to a PhD, are stepping into philosophy from another discipline, or simply want to deepen your understanding of the subject to develop your career.
