Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Masters in Philosophy (MA)

The programme entails the focusing, intensification and deepening of advanced training in the study and practise of Philosophy, with an eye towards independent research. In keeping with existing agreements with foreign universities, students are allowed to follow substitute modules at other universities, while remaining enrolled at Stellenbosch on a full-time basis, with the proviso that substitute components followed in other countries can receive full recognition instead of module 10764 Self Study (Philosophy) 872.

In the case of the structured option, module 10764 Self Study (Philosophy) 872 is assessed internally by written examination and/or orally. The thesis (90 credits or 180 credits) is assessed according to the existing regulations for the examination of postgraduate qualifications.
