The MA in Philosophy is a one-year full time (or two-year part-time) master’s programme. This programme is designed around two main Streams:
Public and Applied Philosophy
Post-Kantian European Philosophy.
Drawing on long traditions of philosophical thought, our modules aim to explore questions of values, forms of reasoning and modes of practice as they play out in personal, societal, and political contexts.
The programme combines historical perspectives and contemporary critical debates to provide analytic and argumentative skills that are transferable into diverse areas of employment as well as being advantageous for further study in philosophy.
A notable feature of the programme is that students are given the opportunity to organise a peer-reviewed international graduate conference.
Within the Philosophy of Children component, students may have placement experience in Irish schools.
