During the Contemporary European Philosophy course at Kingston University, you will study the Contemporary European Philosophies core module and choose an option module from the full range of philosophy courses offered at Kingston University. In the spring term, which is taught in Paris, you will study modules chosen from those offered by the philosophy department at Paris 8 (including two modules offered by a visiting member of Kingston's CRMEP). You will also take a 'special study' module, based on close engagement with a major contemporary thinker of your choice.
You can write your dissertation in London or Paris, in English or French. Preparation of the dissertation lasts around eight months and involves research skills workshops, group tutorials and individual supervision.
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.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
