We've combined the expertise of three departments to allow you to develop a philosophical research project and career through research seminars that cover a wide range of philosophical domains. Ready to kick off your research career in philosophy? So are we!
This full time English/Dutch research master is jointly organised by the Department of Philosophy of the University of Antwerp, the Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences of Ghent University and the Department of Philosophy and Moral Sciences of Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
Graduates of this programme are capable of developing a philosophical research project and draw up a funding application that can be filed with local, national or international funding institutions. They are able, within their areas of specialisation, to formulate original and innovative research problems based on a duly founded insight into the internationally recognised state-of-the-art in that domain. Graduates of this programme are able to work out original solutions to the selected research problems, and argue their cases clearly and convincingly. They are trained in academic writing, which enables them to act as lead authors of academic articles.
The programme prepares students for a research career in philosophy. Students are encouraged to apply for pre-doctoral fellowships — e.g. with the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) or the research councils of the participating universities — with their own research proposal. Students may also apply for doctoral positions with a predetermined research project that falls within their area of expertise. Such positions are regularly advertised in academic newsletters and email-lists.
