The Research Master in philosophy provides a thorough training in philosophical research. It gives you the skills to analyse complex arguments and problems, and the ability to present ideas in a clear and rigorous manner. It prepares you to do a PhD in philosophy and provides vital skills for other jobs where research skills are needed.
Students choose one of three specializations: history of philosophy, theoretical philosophy, or ethics, social and political philosophy. But the curriculum is flexible and allows you to pursue your own interests.
Groningen's internationally renowned staff have expertise in most areas of philosophy, with particular strengths in early modern philosophy, ethics, metaethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of mind, (formal) epistemology, logic, and the philosophy of science.
