Overview

This full time English/Dutch research master is jointly organised by the Department of Philosophy of the University of Antwerp, the Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences of Ghent University and the Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences of Vrije Universiteit Brussel. 

Graduates of this programme are capable of developing a philosophical research project and draw up a funding application that can be filed with local, national or international funding institutions. They are able, within their areas of specialisation, to formulate original and innovative research problems based on a duly founded insight into the internationally recognised state-of-the-art in that domain. Graduates of this programme are able to work out original solutions to the selected research problems, and argue their cases clearly and convincingly. They are trained in academic writing, which enables them to act as lead authors of academic articles.

Other requirements

General requirements

Flemish students who expect to obtain one of the degrees mentioned in (1) or (2) before October 2022, but do not have it yet, should follow the admission procedure for other students.

Students with master’s degrees in other disciplines, students with philosophy degrees obtained outside the Flemish community and Flemish philosophy/moral sciences students who have not achieved the required grade may be admitted to the program after a review procedure. 

Important: if you don’t have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in philosophy and/or moral science (i.e. if your application is based on a master’s degree in a different discipline) you can only be admitted if you have attended sufficient philosophical/moral science course units. By this we mean: a package amounting to at least 60 credits that includes philosophical/moral science methodology courses, and courses at an advanced level.
