Program Description:

The Research Master in Philosophy is a two-year programme that teaches a wide range of subjects in philosophy. Our overall aim is to provide you with the skills and insight needed to do independent intellectual work in philosophy at a postgraduate level. Some of our students want to acquire these skills as preparation for a PhD, some plan to use them in another area of intellectual enterprise, and some are just curious and want to know what postgraduate study in philosophy is like. But all are invited to participate in a lively research environment in which students are encouraged to interact with some of the best minds in the field.

The art of thinking

The difference between our Research Master’s programme in Philosophy and other programmes is that it emphasizes skills. You will receive a solid, thorough training in the art of thinking: clear reasoning, critical analysis, deciphering complex subjects, and techniques such as conveying your thoughts accurately. As a Master’s graduate you will be able to make a valuable contribution to the intellectual debate on philosophy, both amongst colleagues and in wider social circles.

Spectrum of specializations

Tilburg’s Research Master’s programme in Philosophy is a joint venture with the Faculty of Philosophy at Radboud University Nijmegen. Together, we offer the widest selection of philosophy specializations in Europe. You can choose between expert supervision in continental, analytical and historical approaches to philosophy in a wide range of research areas.
