Every field of study raises a number of philosophical questions: about its foundations and methodology, its ethical and political implications, its connection with other disciplines, and its history.

Thinking about these questions gives you a deeper insight in your discipline, be it physics, medicine, psychology, history, arts, or any other field of study. This unique programme of 60 ECTS, combined with 60 ECTS from your initial master's, gives you an additional MA degree in the philosophy of your field.

This master's programme offers courses in the philosophy and history of science, a seminar linking philosophy with your initial master's programme, and tutorials in which you work with experts on the philosophy of your discipline. Additionally, the programme will regularly organize colloquia with experts working in the philosophy and history of science.

Students will join discussions and write reports that translate the scientific context to philosophical or public discourses. The master thesis will focus on a topic in the field of philosophy or history of your initial discipline. The programme will provide you with philosophical research and writing skills that will enhance both your level of expertise in your field and your thinking in general.

Waarom aan de RUG?

The Faculty of Philosophy is a home to researchers working at the very forefront of the philosophy and history of science. Staff members have hands-on experience in an exhaustive range of scientific and scholarly fields as well as a thorough knowledge of the philosophy and history of those fields of study.
On top of that, results of the National Student Assessment (NSE) show that our students are very satisfied with the contents of our programmes and that they highly value the expertise of our teaching staff. Small-scale classes and a friendly, informal setting enhance contacts between our staff and students. In reviews of the Keuzegids Universiteiten and in the Higher Education Review of Dutch University Faculties, our faculty is almost always rated number one by both students and professors year after year. It scored 3 times 'excellent' in the last assessment of philosophical research in the Netherlands.

Studieprogramma

opbouw
The programme can be studied in one year, following the MA in your field of study or in some cases preceding it, or in two years, alongside the MA programme in your field of study.
In the two-year variant (shown in the course scheme), you follow a general philosophy of science course in the first semester, and a course that specialises towards the history and philosophy of your discipline, coupled to a course on writing skills, in the second. In your second year you follow a history of science course in the first semester. Over the year you follow two tutorials with experts in the philosophy of your field, and you write a thesis in the second semester.

In the one year variant, philosophy and history of science run parallel, and the specialization course, the writing skills course, and the thesis are done in the second semester. Tutorials can be planned anytime after the first quarter.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

There are numerous opportunities for students who can combine scientific or scholarly expertise with an ability to reflect on their disciplinary background. They are good at identifying key issues in their field, and they have learnt to analyze problems sharply and clearly. They have strong communicative skills, a critical attitude, and awareness of the fundamental starting points of scientific and scholarly research.

All of these skills are highly valuable for students who aim for a research career in their respective discipline, or indeed in the history and philosophy of their discipline. But the very same skills are of great value in education and policy making, or in any other sphere in which scientific knowledge is evaluated and put to use.
