Career prospects

Philosophy has a unique role within contemporary society. Unlike other academic disciplines, its subject matter is not limited to one set of questions, or one domain of investigation. 

Philosophers poke their noses into all aspects of science and society. In order to do this, they must possess two essential skills, namely the ability to analyse complex issues logically and conceptually and the ability to document their conclusions in clear and persuasive language. Such skills are not innate. They require intensive training. 

The research Master's programme in Philosophy constitutes the first professional step towards the acquisition of these skills.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Popper on Plato and the Open Society

  • The Philosophy of Space and Time

  •  Philosophical Anthropology,

  •  Metaphysics,
