Every field of study raises a number of philosophical questions: about its foundations and methodology, its ethical and political implications, its connection with other disciplines, and its history.
Thinking about these questions gives you a deeper insight in your discipline, be it physics, medicine, psychology, history, arts, or any other field of study. This unique programme of 60 ECTS, combined with 60 ECTS from your initial master's, gives you an additional MA degree in the philosophy of your field.
This master's programme offers courses in the philosophy and history of science, a seminar linking philosophy with your initial master's programme, and tutorials in which you work with experts on the philosophy of your discipline. Additionally, the programme will regularly organize colloquia with experts working in the philosophy and history of science.
Students will join discussions and write reports that translate the scientific context to philosophical or public discourses. The master thesis will focus on a topic in the field of philosophy or history of your initial discipline. The programme will provide you with philosophical research and writing skills that will enhance both your level of expertise in your field and your thinking in general.
