MA in Reasoning, Canterbury (U.K.)

The Department of Philosophy, University of Kent invites applications MA 
in Reasoning.

We offer a wide variety of topics and modules, in all areas of philosophy. 
Our department is a place of academic brilliance, friendly exchange, 
intellectual excitement and diversity. In our weekly departmental research 
seminar colleagues and philosophers from other universities present their 
current work, and in our thriving student-run graduate seminar students 
discuss their ideas with peers and members of staff. We host a Centre for 
Reasoning and are connected to the Aesthetics Research group, both 
offering their own weekly research seminars. We are part of the School of 
European Culture and Languages, which encourages interdisciplinary 
connections, especially with Religious Studies, Linguistics, German, 
French, Italian, and Classics.

We offer a scholarship covering the fees for home and EU students. The 
application deadline is 4 April 2013.

The latest Guardian League Table ranks our graduate employment rate as 
third best in the country, better than Oxford and beaten only by Cambridge 
and Durham. In the undergraduate National Student Survey 2012 Philosophy 
at Kent had a 89% overall student satisfaction rate.

MA in Reasoning
(1 year full-time or 2 years part-time)
This MA programme offers a selection of topics related to reasoning and inference. It
covers areas such as cognitive science and AI; scientific, mathematical, logical, causal
and inductive reasoning; philosophy of mind, logic and language. The programme is
ideally suited to students with philosophical training who would like to pursue their
undergraduate interests yet develop skills that make them attractive to a broad range of
employers, or who would like the advanced training required for a PhD in this area. The
flexibility of this programme enables you to negotiate your own path of study through a
range of topics. Students can focus exclusively on philosophical topics or can study
reasoning-related topics in Psychology, Computing, Statistics, Law, Social Policy,
Biosciences and History.
