Presentación

Because of its very nature, mental health care raises as many conceptual questions as empirical ones. The philosophy of mental health is a rapidly developing field developed by philosophers, clinicians, eg psychiatrists and mental health nurses and mental health service users. Based on the Oxford Textbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry co-authored by the course leader, the MA Philosophy and Mental Health course aims to develop a better understanding of psychiatry, and mental health care more broadly, through an analysis of some of its fundamental concepts.

Requisitos

In addition to standard access via prior academic qualifications, applications to this programme are also welcome from potential students with relevant practical experience in the field of mental health through, for example, mental health nursing or patient advocacy. Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits. Those without formal qualifications will be invited to undertake a short exercise typical of work on the degree programme: summarising and criticising Thomas Szasz´ essay: ´The myth of mental illness´.

Normally the following general University wide entry requirements apply:

Postgraduate Diplomas, Certificates and Conversion Courses: A recognised British first degree or its equivalent, or a BTEC Higher Diploma/Certificate.
Taught Masters Courses: A recognised British honours degree to a good standard, or its equivalent. In addition to access via prior academic qualifications, however, applications to this programme are also welcome from potential students with relevant practical experience in the field of mental health through, eg mental health nursing or patient advocacy.

Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits.
