This MA is widely recognised as one of the most significant and innovative courses in its field. Unlike most courses on art theory, this programme grounds its problems and concepts in the appropriate philosophical context. It will prepare you for a wide range of careers in the arts, education and public policy – it is particularly highly regarded in the arts. It also provides an ideal preparation for doctoral research across the humanities and social sciences.

Key features
-You will benefit from high levels of staff-student contact, including individual tutorials, from versatile and internationally recognised teaching staff with a range of interests, projects and publications.
-You will be part of a large, supportive community, studying with committed and engaged peers.
-The course is based at the UK's leading Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University, which organises conferences, workshops and regular research seminars.

What will you study?

This programme combines a grounding in philosophical aesthetics in the modern European tradition with study of contemporary art theory and the philosophy of art history. Canonical authors studied include Adorno, Derrida, de Duve, Duchamp, Greenberg, Heidegger, Kant and Merleau-Ponty. You will engage with some of the most influential texts in modern and contemporary art theory - from Kant and Schiller via Greenberg and Adorno to Rancière and Deleuze - framed in terms of fundamental conceptual problems inherited from the German Idealists. You will also gain a clear overview of philosophical approaches to modern art, distinguishing between ‘aesthetic', ‘Romantic' and ‘Modernist' problematics. You may also choose from a range of option modules from the Modern European Philosophy and Philosophy & Contemporary Critical Theory MA courses.

Assessment

Coursework (including short exercises), essays and a 15,000-word dissertation.

Research areas

This course is taught by internationally recognised specialists at the dynamic Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy.
Since its inception in 1994, the CRMEP has developed a national and international reputation for teaching and research in the field of post-Kantian European philosophy, characterised by a strong emphasis on broad cultural and intellectual contexts and a distinctive sense of social and political engagement. In each of the last two research assessment exercises, RAE 2008 and REF2014, 65% of the research activities of the CRMEP were judged 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent', with 25% of its outputs for REF2014 judged 'world-leading'.

This joint masters programme offers a unique international and interlinguistic orientation in current philosophical work. The course is taught by leading figures in the field of contemporary European philosophy, based at two of its most significant and productive institutions. Full-time students spend the autumn semester at Kingston's Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), and the spring semester at the University of Paris 8 (Saint-Denis).

As a joint European programme, this MA is longer than a standard British MA. Taken over 18 months (from September to the following March), it involves a more specialised study and a more extensive MA dissertation.
-In preparation for the term in Paris, you can take advantage of free French language tuition in the autumn term through our Kingston Language Scheme.
-You will benefit from high levels of staff contact from versatile and internationally recognised teaching staff with a range of interests.
-The CRMEP is arguably the UK's most stimulating and prestigious provider of MA teaching in the field. The philosophy department at Paris 8 was established by Michel Foucault in the aftermath of May 1968 and was shaped by many of the thinkers (Deleuze, Rancière, Badiou, etc) who studied there. Today, Paris 8 remains lively, mindful of its legacy and marked by a distinctive political culture.

What will you study?

In the autumn term, which is taught at Kingston, you will study the Contemporary European Philosophies core module and choose an option module from the full range of philosophy courses offered at Kingston University. In the spring term, which is taught in Paris, you will study modules chosen from those offered by the philosophy department at Paris 8 (including two modules offered by a visiting member of Kingston's CRMEP). You will also take a 'special study' module, based on close engagement with a major contemporary thinker of your choice.

You can write your dissertation in London or Paris, in English or French. Preparation of the dissertation lasts around eight months and involves research skills workshops, group tutorials and individual supervision.

Assessment

Short exercises, essays, independent study, research skills workshops, and a 20,000-word dissertation.

By taking this course you will study the following module Forensic Psychology module plus modules from Criminology:

Investigative and Legal Processes in Forensic Psychology
This module covers a range of theoretical and applied topics regarding investigative and judicial processes. For example, psychological principles may be applied to investigative approaches to interviewing, detecting deception, bearing false witness, offender profiling, case linkage, eyewitness memory, jury behaviour and decision-making, examining the state of mind and assessment, and expert psychological testimony (ethics, code of practice, report writing and practice). By taking this approach the student develops a critical understanding of pertinent stages in the investigative process where psychology may be used to improve interviewing strategies, as in the employment of the cognitive interview to assist in the improvement of witnesses' memory recall. This course then develops upon the investigative knowledge base provided by encouraging students to identify areas within the courtroom process where psychological techniques could be utilised. Thus, students are taken on an analytical and evaluative journey of the key criminal justice processes of the investigation and presentation of evidence in cases.
