MA Philosophy (Research) at Radboud University Nijmegen: Profile

Philosophy has a unique role within contemporary society. Unlike other academic disciplines, its subject matter is not limited to one set of questions, or one domain of investigation. Philosophers poke their noses into all aspects of science and society. In order to do this, they must possess two essential skills, namely the ability to analyse complex issues logically and conceptually and the ability to document their conclusions in clear and persuasive language. Such skills are not innate. They require intensive training. The Research Master's programme in Philosophy constitutes the first professional step towards the acquisition of these skills.

MA Philosophy (Research) at Radboud University Nijmegen: Career

This programme has been designed for people with the ambition to do research. Graduates tend to fall into three groups. One group continue their research within academia by applying for a doctoral programme in the Netherlands or abroad. A second group teach philosophy at secondary schools. And a third group enter research-related professions outside of education.

Our graduates are particularly well represented in journalism, science policy, and politics. The reputation of Radboud University, and of the Philosophy Faculty in particular, will stand you in good stead whichever career path you choose.
