Philosophy (MScR)


Course Description

Research profile

This programme offers the opportunity to focus in detail on an area of your choosing, while still being able to take some taught courses. It is intended for those who already have a good background in philosophy, typically from undergraduate study.

Programme structure

The main part of the programme will involve you writing a dissertation, and you should have an idea of the topic or area that you would like to write about when you apply. You will be supported in developing this topic during the year by your supervisor and by dedicated training in research methodology.

Students are also advised to take two taught courses (further courses may also be attended, but not for credit), which are available from the wide range of subjects taught at Masters level within Philosophy.

In this case, the final mark for the programme will be determined by a weighted combination of the marks for coursework and the dissertation. In some cases it may be possible to register for a dissertation only.

Teaching will typically be in small groups, and supervision is organised on the basis of one-to-one contact with one or a small number of expert supervisors.
