About

The Philosophy programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt aims to deepen the insights of students in the systematic and historic multiplicity of philosophical problems, to complete mastery of learned techniques for scientific work and to enable students to engage in independent philosophical work.

Overview

On the one hand the Philosophy programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt provides for a scientific confrontation with philosophy in its systematic breadth and allows students to acquire scientific knowledge and competences in dealing with both historic and current philosophical problems. 

On the other hand the Master’s degree programme provides for creation of individual major fields of study in which the student acquires deepened knowledge and understanding and learns to develop his own position and to defend it. By the end of the degree programme the student should have acquired the ability to make formal and contextually correct contributions to philosophical specialist discussions.

Aims of the programme

The students of philosophy deepen their central key competences during the degree programme, namely the ability to practice analytical thinking, to solve a problem, on argumentation, in dealing with challenging texts and media as well as mediation of complex issues in an understandable form. The programme of study aims to qualify the student for careers which demand pronounced analytical and communicative competences.
