Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy offers a comprehensive program, covering the major areas of philosophical study, leading to Master's and doctoral degrees. The MA programs are designed to give broad and thorough training in all major fields of philosophy, with the possibility of deeper acquaintance in a chosen field. The department's doctoral program aims to train professionals prepared to undertake academic careers, as researchers or university teachers. Both MA and doctoral programs promote a scholarly attitude that combines historical and analytical approaches in philosophy. Curricula are designed so that students are required to study each of the major fields of contemporary philosophy. A specialization in history of philosophy is also available, including the possibility of specialization in ancient philosophy. Thus, graduates gain the rare ability to conduct a dialogue across the dividing lines occasionally fragmenting the philosophical discipline.
