About

One year official master program in Barcelona, offering a solid, research-oriented training, and preparing students for the most demanding doctoral programmes in Spain and abroad.

Overview

Introduction

The master's degree in Analytic Philosophy at University of Barcelona is open to students who have not gained sufficient familiarity with the assumptions and methods of analytical philosophy during their undergraduate studies. It is also open to students who have completed undergraduate degrees in disciplines other than philosophy, who will be asked to complete bridging subjects worth up to 30 credits, selected in agreement with their tutor.

As a discipline, analytical philosophy relies heavily on clarity of argumentation, perspicuity of thought and an imaginative critique of approaches that are further removed from common intuition. In the Anglo-Saxon world, it has proved to be a fundamental tool in training professionals in the most widely-sought cross-disciplinary competences, such as the ability to identify and articulately express the central points of a debate, to apply thought and expression precisely in the analysis of complex problems, and to consider propositions with intellectual curiosity and a critical eye. 

Students who are not looking to pursue an academic career will find good opportunities to put their knowledge into practice in public administration and the private sector.

Recommended applicant profile

Candidates should have the motivation and interest needed to acquire the competences and skills provided by the study of contemporary analytical philosophy. They should have a capacity for abstract reasoning, the imagination to explore the possibilities beyond what has been established, and the intellectual honesty to shun the refuge of obscurity and acknowledge the weakness of their own positions when faced with criticism. Students must also have an excellent level of English, as the entire degree is taught in this language.The course is open to holders of degrees in philosophy or other disciplines, such as humanities, journalism, linguistics, philology, psychology, physics or biology, who want to pursue additional training (after completing, where necessary, the appropriate bridging courses).
