MLitt Philosophy at Newcastle – Carry on Studying with a Masters in Philosophy

Third years! and people everywhere who already have or are near to finishing their first degree! – Why not carry on studying philosophy, or encounter continental philosophy for the very first time, with the MLitt Philosophy degree at Newcastle. It’s a mixture of teaching and research, designed to induct you into continental thought, and even philosophy as such if you’ve never studied it before. It can help you decide whether you want to carry on and do a PhD in the subject, or simply let you carry on for an extra year or two studying what you love.
