Course summary

Why choose this course?

This Modern European Philosophy MA course is recognised as one of the most challenging and stimulating philosophy masters programmes in the UK. Based on a focused study of the fundamental texts of the modern European philosophical tradition, it provides an ideal preparation for doctoral research in philosophy or related fields in the humanities and social sciences. It will also prepare graduates for a wide range of careers in education, the arts, politics and public policy.

What you will study

This course engages in depth with fundamental texts in modern European philosophy, including Kant, Hegel and Marx through to contemporary thinkers more recently. Comprising four taught modules and a dissertation on a topic of your choice, you'll have the opportunity to study 19th- and 20th-century European philosophy in a structured way, concentrating on the interpretation and analysis of key texts, and on the legacy of foundational figures in the field. You can choose from a wide range of module options, balanced by a shared central core of texts, concepts and problems.

Teaching and assessment

The course is delivered through relatively small seminars, which involve a mixture of structured lectures or presentations, textual analysis, and group discussion.

After you graduate

Our graduates often progress to research degrees in European philosophy and critical theory, or to careers in media/journalism, publishing, the arts, education, and public policy.
