Students on the MA in Philosophy by Research follow an approved programme of research supervised by a member of academic staff and informed by a Thesis Advisory Panel. Alongside this academic support, students are supported by a programme of training in research methods and transferable skills. Students are assessed solely on the basis of their research (which must include original work) by at least two individually appointed examiners, one of whom will be external to the University.
Applications are invited from candidates wishing to work in all the major areas of interest in the Department. Members of the Department have research interests in Ancient Philosophy, Early Modern Philosophy (Descartes to Kant), Post-Kantian Philosophy, History of Analytic Philosophy, Aesthetics, Philosophy of Language and Logic, Philosophy of Mind and Psychology, Philosophy of Religion, Metaphysics and Epistemology, Ethical Theory, and Applied Ethics.
The minimum requirements for admission to the programme are an upper second or first class (or equivalent) undergraduate degree with some philosophy, a satisfactory research proposal of 1,000 - 2,000 words, and for students whose first language is not English, meeting the Department's English language requirement.
