Master description

The Official Master’s Degree in Applied Philosophy is a master’s degree of 60 credits without specializations.
The master’s degree comprises 48 obligatory ECTS credits (including the thesis) and an offer of 24 optional ECTS credits, of which students must study 12 ECTS credits. Although students on the master’s degree may freely choose the optional modules and combine the different aspects of the master’s degree, there is the possibility to set two routes of optional credits: one focused on the area of ethics (Animal Ethics and the Philosophy of Gender) and another focused on the area of epistemology (Minds, Machines and Cognition, and Theory and Practice).
The study plan is distributed over two semesters (one academic year) and has a double orientation: research and at the same time, application to the world of work.
