Graduates of the Research Master of Philosophy are capable of developing a philosophical research project and draw up a funding application that can be submitted to local, national or international funding institutions. They are able, within their areas of specialization, to formulate original and innovative research problems based on a duly founded insight into the internationally recognized state-of-the-art in their domain. Graduates of this program are able to work out original solutions to selected research problems and argue their cases in a clear and convincing way.
They are trained in academic writing, which enables them to act as lead authors of academic articles.
The research seminars that constitute the core of the program cover a wide range of philosophical domains. Some relate to socially relevant topics (i.e. applied philosophy) while others relate to more fundamental, purely philosophical domains.
