Students take three optional courses. Students who have not studied philosophy formally before must take the two General Philosophy courses. Students who have studied philosophy before will normally be permitted to take a maximum of one General Philosophy course with the approval of the MA tutor.
The General courses:
• General Philosophy: Moral & Political Philosophy (This course is restricted to UCL MA students only)
• General Philosophy: Knowledge & Reality (This course is restricted to UCL MA students only)
In addition, all MA students will take the MA Research Preparation Seminar which introduces students to graduate study in philosophy and to philosophical discussion. MA students are also permitted to take graduate courses entitled 'Research Seminars'. It should be noted that these typically involve the presentation
of cutting-edge research by members of staff,
and in more technical areas these can be very challenging
for students with less previous background
