Master's


Program Strengths

Our Masters of Arts programme in Continental Philosophy is taught entirely by distance learning. You will study four taught modules designed to provide a thorough grounding in continental philosophy from Kant to the 21st Century, and then produce a supervised research project to complete the degree. The programme is designed for those who simply have a keen interest in philosophy, those who want a postgraduate qualification, and also those who wish to progress onto a Ph.D. programme. This distance learning degree course is available both part- and full-time.
