Philosophy

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

The study of philosophy is a pursuit of wisdom. It involves a type of thinking that is comprehensive and critical, and seeks to answer questions of reason, understanding, knowledge, emotion, values, rationality and different beliefs. Philosophy education may be beneficial for careers in law, politics, civil service and journalism.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
