New Distance Learning MAs

The Philosophy department will begin to offer two of our Masters programmes by distance learning from September 2013. These masters programmes are in Philosophy of Health and Happiness and Philosophy of Religion and Ethics. Both of these new distance learning programmes are now officially open for admissions. You can find more information about these programmes and the online application process from the following pages in the online prospectus:

These distance learning programmes are offered both as full-time (one year) and part-time (2-3 years) programmes. The teaching on these programmes is all done online and so students are not required to come on our campus. We will use a variety of teaching methods from video and audio to interactive online discussion boards and more traditional readings and essay assignments. These programmes are also highly suitable for professionals in healthcare and teaching, for example, and for international students. For funding opportunities, see the Collage of Arts and Law Graduate School's funding page for taught students.
