Philosophy degree offered by the University of Bergen covers all areas of philosophy, with a special emphasis on Ancient Philosophy, Ethics and Political Philosophy, Logic, Philosophy of Science and Mathematics, and Wittgenstein Studies.
In the master’s programme in Philosophy you will discuss questions like:
- What is knowledge and how is it different from true belief? What really exists? Do numbers, souls, markets, and the future exist? Do I exist?
- Is there a universal rule, or principle that distinguishes right from wrong? Is morality subjective? Is it relative to human communities and historical periods?
- What is the best form to organize human society? Are values like freedom and equality necessarily in conflict? Do we have free will?
Through the study, you will broaden your knowledge and deepen your understanding of key topics in philosophy, and refine your critical skills. You will also develop the skills needed for independent research.
