The master’s programme brings the student up to the latest developments in theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy, logic and philosophy of science. It encourages students to work either on traditional problems in philosophy (e.g. the nature and scope of human knowledge, the foundations of our moral judgements, the problem of free will, etc.) or to engage with new challenges arising from contemporary science (e.g. the problem of climate change, the foundations of cognitive science, the use of statistical methods in science, etc.)
The first three semesters focus on coursework (seminars, lectures, essay writing). 84 ECTS credits have to be earned in philosophy, additional 24 ECTS credits can be earned either in philosophy or any other scientific area (free electives). The fourth semester is dedicated to writing a master’s thesis (30 credits). A master’s examination (6 credits) has to be taken at the end of the programme.
