Overview

Language is without doubt one of our most complex achievements, but at the end of the day, it’s all about what we do with it, how we use language to understand, comfort, criticise, and manipulate each other. Language is an immensely complicated tool for doing all these things, and more. We talk all the time. Language is our main form of social interaction. In the Master’s specialisation in Philosophy of Language and Logic you’ll explore the richness of language from a social and evolutionary perspective.

Future career opportunities

This specialisation in Philosophy of Language and Logic (Research) at Radboud University has been designed for people with the ambition to conduct philosophical research at a university. Graduates tend to fall into one of three groups:

  • A majority of the students continue their research within academia by applying for a doctoral programme in the Netherlands or abroad. We take particular pride in the fact that more than 60 percent of our graduates manage to obtain a PhD position within two years of graduating.
  • A second group goes on to teach philosophy at secondary schools.
  • And a third group enters research-related professions outside of education.
  • Programme Structure

    Courses include:

    • Language in Society
    • Elective research seminars (History of Philosophy, Metaphysics, Philosophical Anthropology, Philosophy of Mind, Political Philosophy or Ethics)
    • Elective courses
    • State of the Art Paper and Master’s thesis
