This programme is designed for students wishing to explore the connections between philosophy and law, but is weighted towards philosophy. Students combine their philosophical studies with an academic legal component from the LLM programme.
The structure of the MA in Philosophy and Law is similar to the MA in Philosophy, except that you will take one unit from the LLM and do one essay unit on a topic linking philosophy and law.
You will be taught and supervised by members of a friendly and informal department with an outstanding reputation in the UK and internationally. You are assigned a tutor who will help you to select your course of study and choose the topics you wish to research. You have the opportunity to write several extended pieces of work, including a 15,000-word dissertation.
You will be an active member of our flourishing research culture and will be encouraged to participate in the three weekly research seminars on a wide range of philosophical issues.
