The objective of the master is to provide advanced training in the different fields of philosophy. Its aim is that students will acquire a cultivated critical mind-set, and the ability to carry out objective analyses and synopses which put the factors which must be considered when approaching a question into perspective.

At the end of the master, the students:

  • will have acquired advanced philosophical knowledge;
  • will be able to carry out a critical review of the literature relating to a particular question;
  • will be able to compare and defend philosophical theories.
