About

This full time Research Master of Philosophy is jointly organised by the University of Antwerp, Ghent University and the Free University of Brussels. The programme offers a high-level training for excellent students who seek to develop a research career in philosophy.

Overview

Programme details

Graduates of this Research Master of Philosophy programme at the University of Antwerp 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.

The research seminars that constitute the core of the programme cover a wide range of philosophical domains. Some relate to socially relevant topics (i.e. more applied philosophy) while others relate to more fundamental, purely philosophical domains.
