Master's programme in Philosophy


Philosophy students discussing

Philosophical questions and answers are inexhaustible. Due to the constant dynamics of and subsequent changes in society basic questions and answers must be reformulated and reconsidered. The master's programme in Philosophy provides students with the opportunity to study previous and recent problems, along with establishing new truths.

The history of philosophy and the means through which different philosophers throughout the ages have formulated their questions are central topics within the study of philosophy. Furthermore, the means through which changes in time form principles and challenge our understanding and scholarly insight is subject to discussion and critical approach.

Master's students in Philosophy will thus through their studies acquire an introduction to philosophic research through their own practice. The programme of study also provides a thorough introduction to the theory and method of philosophy.

The objective of the master's thesis is to document the student's ability to work independently with a philosophical problem. The emphasis is on clarity and coherence in analysis and presentation. The student will receive academic supervision throughout the writing process.
