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

The Masters of Arts in Philosophy and Public Affairs is is a one-year interdisciplinary programme (or two years part-time), designed to offer graduates of either philosophy or the social sciences (politics, economics, history) the opportunity to study some of the many areas of overlap between the disciplines, and especially to explore foundational questions in public policy formulation. The innovative programme mixes the abstract and the applied, with half the modules from the School of Philosophy, and half from existing MA modules in the School of Politics and International Relations, the School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice.
