What is freedom (and why should it be valued)? What causal role does the body play in cognition? What makes an argument convincing?

Philosophy is the systematic investigation of fundamental questions. Students are trained to think and write in a clear manner about topics such as the relations between mind, body and cognition, the nature and basis of moral judgments, the limits of knowledge, or the principles of social justice.

The Research Master Philosophy offers you the opportunity to work with leading scholars in the history of philosophy, practical philosophy and theoretical philosophy (see staff pages). It prepares you for an academic career, but also teaches useful skills for other jobs.

The programme offers a core curriculum on philosophical problems related to ongoing research in the faculty, as well as many opportunities to pursue your own interests.

We reserve two fully funded PhD positions for our students every year, and offer paid teaching assistantships (see: 'Why Groningen?').

Our personal approach makes the Faculty a wonderful place to study, and our programme is consistently ranked highly by independent assessors. (Read about it here.)

The Master's programme in Philosophy is offered both on a full-time and part-time basis.
