Course summary

The MLitt in Philosophy and Society is an interdisciplinary programme that enables students to explore the connections between philosophical thinking and real-world social problems and questions.

The MLitt in Philosophy and Society is the only Masters’ degree in the UK that focuses on practising and applying philosophy outside the university. As well as deepening your philosophical knowledge, you will learn to engage non-academic audiences and make an impact with philosophy through unique courses and placements – whatever your area of interest or intended career.

The MLitt in Philosophy and Society develops students' core philosophical skills of conceptual analysis, textual interpretation, argumentation, research, and writing, while giving them skills and opportunities to use and communicate philosophy publicly and impactfully. Each student will forge connections between philosophy and another area, such as science, politics, education, technology, or the arts, and will build links with other disciplines, organisations, and businesses with a view to their future research and career.

There are many opportunities at the University of Aberdeen to develop your knowledge, gain experience and build a competitive set of skills to enhance your employability. This is essential for your future career success. The Careers and Employability Service can help you to plan your career and support your choices throughout your time with us, from first to final year – and beyond.
