Teaching the skills to become an academic philosopher, like analytic reading and problem-solving capabilities, in-depth understanding of research methodologies, as well as expressive and communicative powers.

Philosophy has a unique role within contemporary society. Unlike other academic disciplines, its subject matter is not limited to one set of questions, or one domain of investigation. Philosophers poke their noses into all aspects of science and society. In order to do this, they must possess two essential skills, namely the ability to analyse complex issues logically and conceptually and the ability to document their conclusions in clear and persuasive language. Such skills are not innate. They require intensive training. The Research Master's programme in Philosophy constitutes the first professional step towards the acquisition of these skills.

Specialisations

The Research Master's in Philosophy offers eight different specialisations.

History of Philosophy

You will explore specific issues in the history of philosophy and science from Antiquity to the contemporary period. Our specialties are: ancient cosmologies; medieval natural philosophy; the Scientific Revolution and the birth of modern philosophy; idealism and phenomenology; the emergence and end of the metaphysical tradition; philosophy in the technological age.

Metaphysics and Epistemology

This specialisation mainly focuses on how metaphysical questions – on explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it – are raised in the continental tradition.

Philosophical Anthropology

You will deal with philosophical significant questions related to human beings and examine the different states of the human condition.

Philosophical Ethics

You will learn to research the relationship between language and verbal and non-verbal communication in the context of social interaction.

Philosophy of Language and Logic

You will learn to research the relationship between language and verbal and non-verbal communication in the context of social interaction.

Philosophy of Mind

You will discover the mysteries of the mind and some of the most profound questions about ourselves, such as: do we have freewill? What is consciousness? And what is it that makes (most) human beings persons?

Philosophy of Religion

This specialisation focuses on the philosophical reflection on religion in Western thought and contemporary society. It also explores the relation between philosophy and religion in Western and other cultural contexts.

Social and Political Philosophy

In this specialisation you will study ‘the political' as an essential but conflict-ridden aspect of the human condition, and how politics is a way of coping with the issues resulting from this.

Reikalaujamas išsilavinimas

Į magistro studijų programas gali stoti visi, baigę universitetą arba besimokantys paskutiniame kurse. Studijos kurias baigei ar tebesimokai turi būti panašios krypties kaip ir tos, į kurias nori stoti, kadangi priėmimas yra paremtas ECTS kreditų suderinamumu.

  • ECTS kreditų išrašas - jei dar nesi baigęs aukštosios mokyklos, būtina prisegti ECTS kreditų išrašą, kuriame būtų matyti, kokius dalykus Tu mokeisi bei kokius pažymius ir kiek kreditų už juos gavai. Kai siunti anketą paskutiniame kurse, diplomą reikia prisegti vėliau, kai tik jį gausi.
  • Bakalauro diplomas – jei jau esi baigęs aukštąją mokyklą, išrašo nereikia, užtenka prie anketos prisegti savo Bakalauro diplomą.

Job positions

This programme has been designed for people with the ambition to do research. Graduates tend to fall into one of three groups:

  1. A majority of the students continue their research within academia by applying for a doctoral programme in the Netherlands or abroad. We take particular pride in the fact that more than 75 percent of our graduates manage to obtain a PhD position within two years of graduating.
  2. A second group goes on to teach philosophy at secondary schools.
  3. And a third group enter research-related professions outside of education.

Our graduates are also represented in journalism, science policy, and politics.

The reputation of Radboud University – and of the Philosophy Faculty in particular – will definitely serve you well whichever career path you choose.
