Course summary

Course outline

Do you want to explore fascinating ideas in philosophy? This distance learning MA offers you a chance to study important figures and ideas in recent and contemporary philosophy – all from the comfort of your own home.

You’ll be guided through the work of key philosophers in the European tradition including Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Foucault. You’ll gain a broad knowledge and understanding of philosophy, learning from our experienced staff. The course is taught and assessed entirely online, giving you the freedom to study anytime, anywhere.

The Continental (or European) tradition is the most influential branch of philosophical enquiry. It provides essential knowledge for the study of social, cultural, political, media, literary or art theory.

We welcome anyone studying simply out of interest and a passion for the subject, but also those working towards a specific career. You may also wish to study as preparation for a PhD.

This course is run as part-time over 30 months. The expected study pattern is to complete modules totalling 60 credits in each year of study.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MA Continental Philosophy

Your assessments encourage you to investigate questions, scenarios and problems to help you develop knowledge and problem-solving skills.
