In this full-time, two year research-based Masters programme I ran multiple self-initiated projects investigating the ways people think, feel and behave in the context of their relationship and interactions with digital communication technologies. I also took electives in Utopian Studies looking at 'the Body as Utopia'. This interdisciplinary programme combined neuroscience, psychology, communication theory, phenomenology, and social science approaches. I was fully trained in research design, and qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis.
I complemented the programme's core focus on analytic philosophy with electives in anthropological and eastern philosophy including Hinduism and Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism. Over the duration of the course my interest oriented towards the Philosophy of Mind and Metaphysics. In particular, I was curious about comparisons between the concept of time and the human experience of temporality.
