Graduate Diploma in Philosophy Grad Dip

Study Details

Grad Dip 1 year Full-time, Grad Dip 2 years Part-time

This course is intended to provide an opportunity for students with no background in Philosophy to do advanced work in the subject and to obtain an Honours-level qualification in it. The course is open to those who already have an upper second first degree, and it may be taken on either a full-time basis (9 months) or a part-time basis (18 months). The first part of the programme aims to provide students with a knowledge of important topics in Philosophy and also an opportunity to develop essential skills to engage critically with those topics. In this part of the programme, students take four to five undergraduate modules. The second part of the programme aims to give students experience in applying research skills to a well-defined problem under the guidance of an expert in the area.
