MA Modules for 2013-14
Our MA students come from a range of backgrounds and can take different routes through the MA. The Director of Graduate Studies will advise you on what is best for you and which modules might be most suitable. There is also flexibility over the year, allowing you to change your plans as your interests develop.
This list may vary slightly from year to year due to staff changes and so on. From 2013 we plan to increase the number of modules specifically for MA students. We will introduce a new MA module in the History of Philosophy, and a Philosophical Foundations module intended for students relatively new to the subject. The present Politics and Value module will be replaced by one module for Politics and another for Value. We will also be introducing a highly flexible Independent Research module, which may (but need not) go together with one of the department's many informal reading groups.
In Spring, students intending to go on to do the PhD take the PhD Proposal module, for which there is a series of seminars on Research and Research Methods in the Autumn.
These modules are taught as group seminars, and so require more independent work; they are therefore advised for those with a philosophy undergraduate degree, and/or those wishing to go on to do the PhD.
