This programme aims to investigate the origins, nature and evolution of the main European intellectual movements. From the modern to the post-modern, the course will familiarise students with the main schools of thought which have shaped the European traditions and to explore their relevance to contemporary issues.
This programme will run over three 12 week semesters. Typically, Semesters 1 and 2 will each have three taught modules (lectures and course work) from at least two academic disciplines, depending on availability, plus the additional Research Methodology module in either semester 1 or 2. Semester 3 will be dedicated to the writing of a dissertation in consultation with a designated supervisor. Part-time options are also available. Each module will involve ongoing assessment, such as essays and oral presentations.
