MA in Continental Philosophy

This MA gives you a high degree of flexibility over the modules you can select. We offer a broad selection of taught modules in 19th- and 20th-century Continental Philosophy, as well as in other areas of philosophy.

Unlike many other postgraduate programmes, you choose your coursework and dissertation proposal from within the field of Continental Philosophy, without any further restriction on your selection of module options. You may decide to study for the MA as a self-standing degree, or as an entry route into PhD research (including the option for 1+3 study). Teaching is led by nine academics in our Department, who can support you to frame a proposal for further doctoral study if you achieve good results on the course.

Recent employment destinations of our postgraduates include lecturing in Philosophy, and working within policy research, law, finance, media, journalism and teaching. A significant number of our postgraduates enter academic careers.
