Do you wish to master the art of thinking? The 2-year research Master's in Philosophy provides an extensive training in academic writing and research methodology in a highly international environment.
The two-year English research master's programme in philosophy is tailored for talented and highly motivated students. It has an international character and is of high academic calibre. Thanks to the small number of admissions, supervision is personal and intense. As a student, you will specializes in one of seven possible philosophical domains, which range from metaphysics and epistemology over the history of philosophy to anthropology and ethics. Each specialization is linked to the research carried out at the Faculty. In the course of your two years, you will follow four research seminars in your own domain, two master seminars (out of a choice of eight), an intense methodology seminar and skills training in oral presentation and academic writing. In the research seminars you will discuss your own work as well as that of faculty members and of guest scholars. A research paper and a thesis will conclude the programme. The thesis takes the form of a publishable article and of a research proposal. The aim of the programme is to prepare you for a career in research, in a university context or in the public or private sectors.
