Program description

Awarded by: National University of Ireland

This course offers you a rare chance to study Western as well as Eastern philosophy at postgraduate level. For one year, you will be involved in the study of different philosophical concepts, theories and approaches to issues concerning the mind and consciousness, action and politics, ethics and aesthetics, society and culture, globalism, power, territory and many more.

As an MA student, you will have the chance during the spring and summer months to put this to work in a sustained piece of independent research.

You can take any five modules of your choice. The modules are specifically designed to provide an overview of current work in a particular area and are aimed at first-year postgraduate students. They each involve set readings and writing assignments. It is expected that you will already be (broadly) familiar with some key philosophical concepts or approaches on starting this course. If you feel that you have some holes to fill, you can ask your lecturer to suggest some introductory readings.
