Master in Modern and Contemporary European Philosophy (académique)
The Master in Modern and Contemporary European Philosophy focuses on European philosophy from Descartes to the present day. To our knowledge this is the only existing Master’s programme that has a specialisation in this field of philosophy. It is especially designed for international students who have a special interest and who aim for a first class education in modern and contemporary European philosophy.
The programme offers an in depth study of European philosophy beginning with classical rationalism and empiricism, moving on to Kant and German Idealism, and concluding with 20th century and contemporary philosophy.
The programme is unique since it includes credited language courses that give students the opportunity to improve on their knowledge of French and German, it offers credited internships that connect students with the job market, and finally it includes interdisciplinary course options in other fields like history, politics, or literature.
We believe that the structure and content of our programme prepare students in a particularly good manner for either pursuing doctoral studies in philosophy, or for their future career outside the academic field.
