概要：Like the MPhil(B), MA programmes involve both taught modules and a dissertation. However MAs incorporate more formal coursework than the MPhil(B), and MA dissertations are less substantial (circa 12,000 words, as opposed to 20,000). MA programmes can also be treated as preparatory for the PhD. MA students are assigned a mentor and a supervisor, and attend formal teaching and training sessions. Apart from the difference in weighting of coursework-to-dissertation noted above, the main distinction of the MA programmes is the inclusion in most of them of elements provided by other departments, promoting an interdisciplinary approach.
In addition to the dissertation, students take two philosophy modules:
Students also pursue a further module in Ethics, at the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics, the Centre for Biomedical Ethics, or the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS).
