Philosophy at Manchester offers an intellectually stimulating and supportive postgraduate environment. Students will be taught and supervised by members of staff who are all actively involved in research. The course is ideal both for those wishing to do a PhD in Philosophy, and for students who want to improve their employability through the development of rigorous critical, analytical and research skills. It provides a deeper knowledge of a wide variety of areas of philosophy than is possible at undergraduate level, and equips students with the ability to plan, organise and work autonomously on a substantial individual project. This project will take the form of either a dissertation (9,000 - 12,000 words), or a longer dissertation of up to 20,000 words. All of the master's course units are taught through small-group seminars. The seminars usually involve some general context-setting and guidance from the course convenor, but are often largely focussed on student-led discussion of set texts that you will have studied in preparation for the discussion. Students are encouraged to engage with the topic and develop their own views and arguments. All units apart from Research Skills run for one semester.
