About MA in Philosophy & Literature, Masters Degree - at School of Philosophy, University College Dublin

The Masters of Arts in Philosophy and Literature is an interdisciplinary one-year programme (or two years part-time), designed to offer graduates of either philosophy or literature (English and other literatures) the opportunity to study the many areas of overlap between the disciplines. The central questions concern the status of the text, the status of the world represented in the text, and the relationship between the reader, the text, the author, and that world.
