Philosophy aims to provide a set of tools for thinking precisely about issues and problems in a variety of domains, from questions about the fundamental nature of the world around us to ideas about how we ought to live our lives. These tools can be used for a variety of purposes: to analyse the language that we use; to gain insight into social, political, and ethical questions concerning gender; or to address pressing concerns about the distribution of scarce resources.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The Master’s Programme in the Humanities, specialising in Philosophy, is a unique two-year programme that has been designed for students wishing to advance their studies in the field of philosophy. You will explore and gain broad knowledge in practical philosophy and theoretical philosophy, whilst having the opportunity to specialise in a research area of your choice.
During the programme you can expect to:
- specialise your studies in either practical or theoretical philosophy.
- explore neighbouring disciplines by taking elective courses at other departments.
- take courses led by internationally recognised researchers.
The Department of Philosophy offers specialised supervision in a wide range of subject areas within philosophy, including the central subjects of theoretical analytic philosophy (language, mind, metaphysics, philosophy of logic, and philosophy of science) and practical philosophy (metaethics, normative ethics, reasons and normativity, philosophy of law, and applied ethics). The department also has significant strengths in aesthetics, the history of philosophy, and at the intersection of the study of philosophy and anthropology.
The structure of this programme closely mirrors that of a Swedish doctoral programme. If you wish to continue your studies at the doctoral level in Sweden or elsewhere, this programme will be excellent preparation for commencing your research career.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120, credits) or a Master of Arts (60 credits) with Theoretical Philosophy or Practical Philosophy as the main field of study depending on the choice of the topic for the thesis and the area of specialisation.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be within the humanities or social sciences. Also required is 60 credits in philosophy.
