goals

Acquisition by the student of advanced training in philosophical issues, aimed at academic specialization and promoting research. The University Master's Degree in Advanced Studies in Philosophy presents a disciplinary framework from which to be able to think critically about the fundamental questions that cross human existence in the current circumstances of individual and social life, prioritizing theoretical perspectives, particularly metaphysical, ontological, anthropological and aesthetic, without neglecting the ethical-political. It is about deepening these questions by developing research skills that enable the completion of the PhD in Philosophy. For this purpose, the University Master's Degree meets the existing demand to acquire specialized training in Philosophy, although it also complements the knowledge acquired by students in related areas, given the marked interdisciplinary nature of philosophical studies, which will subsequently allow access to the period of Research of the Doctoral Program of Excellence of the Faculty of Philosophy.

Recipients

Given the eminently investigative and specialized nature of these studies, the master's degree is aimed at graduates and graduates in Philosophy and in the double degrees of Law-Philosophy and Political-Philosophy. Now, given that these studies offer valuable keys for the interpretation of current reality from its roots with the problems inherited from the philosophical tradition, the master may also interest graduates and graduates in other humanistic and legal-social sciences who have a declared interest in acquiring these keys. In this case, bearing in mind the character of "advanced studies in philosophy", it is a necessary requirement to master concepts and theories of the different philosophical traditions that students who do not belong to the area of Philosophy can acquire through some subjects of the Degree in Philosophy. that the Coordination Commission will suggest in each case.

Why study this master?
