Master Programme

Faculty of Religious Studies and Philosophy

The Master of Philosophy focuses on compared philosophies, which considers the ideas and ways of thinking from different cultures in order to deepen mutual understanding and to discover new ways of solving problems. In the first year, students learn academic writing and research methods as well as how to reflect on different approaches to issues of ethics, aesthetics and theories of knowledge and interpretation. In the second year, students continue to deepen their knowledge and skills through research seminars and prepare a dissertation using cross-cultural philosophical methodologies.
