Overview

The Philosophy course from Keele University  can be taken as an excellent foundation for doctoral (PhD) work, but also as part of personal or professional development. Modules are team-taught by various staff on the programme, which will expose you to different views on the nature of philosophical inquiry and will give you access to expertise in all main areas of philosophy.

The M.Res. (Master of Research) degree is a combined taught and research degree, in which you take an advanced taught module in ‘Metaphilosophy’ (the study of the nature of philosophical inquiry) which is jointly taught by various staff on the programme. You will write a dissertation (about 20,000 words) and also undergo research training, which is assessed by portfolio. The focus on metaphilosophy is unique to Keele, and makes for a fascinating course of study, since the various staff who will teach you have very different views about the nature of philosophical inquiry. This degree is ideal for students who want the freedom to write a dissertation on a topic of their choice, while also receiving the guidance expected from a taught masters.
