About

The Philosophy programme at Kingston University will enable you to study in more depth and with a more intense research focus than the one-year MAs. You will be taught by the internationally renowned members of the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), with their wide range of philosophical and interdisciplinary expertise.

Overview

The Philosophy programme at Kingston University begins with a compulsory module on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. You will then choose five modules from an extensive list that covers some of the foundational texts and thinkers of the modern European tradition (Kant, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger) and 20th- and 21st-century philosophy and critical theory, including psychoanalysis.

Throughout the degree, you'll also attend content-based philosophical research methods seminars. You'll begin preparing your dissertation in Year 2. Assessment of the dissertation includes a viva voce examination. In addition, you will organise and run reading groups around your own interests and on topics related to your dissertation.

Where this course will take you

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.
