The aim of the Master’s degree study programme is to develop and deepen the knowledge and skills acquired in the Bachelor’s degree study programme. Students will become acquainted in detail with the intellectual aspects of the social and cultural evolution of humankind and develop their critical thinking and argumentative skills. The contents of the program include contemporary Anglo-American, French, and German philosophy, ontology, epistemology, comparative ethics, and scientific methodology. Contemporary issues in systematic philosophy, ethics, theory, and scientific methodology are emphasized.
Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan.
Graduates with this degree are qualified for independent work in state administration, educational institutions, and professional institutions of social sciences and humanities orientations. They can make use of their acquired knowledge and skills in editorial work in journals and publishing companies, and in any positions requiring communicative skills, critical thinking, and unbiased judgment.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma. You will find possible combinations on the websites of individual degree programmes.
