MA programme in Philosophy at Aarhus University, Denmark



The MA Programme in Philosophy at Aarhus University offers advanced courses in the main areas of contemporary professional philosophy,  taught by international staff with doctoral degrees from, and professional experience at, leading international departments (Cambridge, Canberra, Oxford, Pittsburgh, St Andrews, Tübingen, UT Austin). The guiding principle of our curriculum is to offer our students a learning environment that emphasizeshigh academic standards and interactive instruction methods to support students indeveloping their individual capacities and career paths. The special design of our two-year program enables students to pursue their philosophical interests in direct involvement with the research activities at the new ResearchProgramme in Philosophy and Intellectual History  at Aarhus University, which is with 50 active researchers one of the largest European research platforms of this kind.  We offer three tracks of specialization:

Track1: Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Philosophy of Cognition offers advanced introductions to these three disciplines and enables students to explore a wide variety of issue  in  theoretical analytical philosophy, including topics in the current departmental research focus such as epistemological normativity, reasoning about conditionals,  modal  reasoning, formal epistemology, process ontology, and philosophical problems of social robotics.

Track2:  Idealism and Post-Idealism  focuses on continental philosophy and offers in-depth scholarly and systematic engagements with Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty,and Cassirer. In addition, in interaction with a departmental research focus on philosophical hermeneutics, the courses of this track introduces students to traditions and disciplines within contemporary continental philosophy that reflect our (historically, culturally, or technologically) mediated identity within the knowledge-society.

Track3: Ethics, Legal and Political Philosophy focuses on the interaction between moral, political, and legal practices, on the one hand, and ethical theory, on the other. Students are provided with the conceptual toolbox to assess the ethics of significant issues of public interest and technological discoveries, such as climate change, the market, poverty, war and humanitarian intervention, legal punishment, the practice of blame, the politics and economics of well-being, nanotechnology, genetics, social robotics, and brain science.

Our MA students become part of a lively and open-minded research environment with many international events. We cultivate an informal climate of intellectual curiosity, we value collaboration across different philosophical traditions, and we actively explore interdisciplinary research with the health-care sciences, cognitive science, anthropology, information science, robotics, and other disciplines.
