Philosophy is major academic discipline offered at almost every university. It is the science concerned with questions such as the meaning of life, the origin of society and a variety of social phenomena present in the real world. But why is the interest in this study currently at its peak?
In general, Philosophy is today playing an important role in a variety of areas, more importantly in Business and Politics. For example, ethical issues related to the economic system, the occurrence of economic crises and the resulting social problems have all become a main topic for discussion, analysis and explanation. In addition, the inability to ensure world peace and sustainable international relations has gathered countless young philosophers to find a way to restore balance and work towards social development and global welfare.
Of course, you could additionally focus on the fundamental sub-fields of Philosophy such as Ethics, Logic and Philosophy of Science. You will go through the thoughts and theories of representatives of a diversity of philosophical movements and periods beginning with Antiquity and all the way to modern times.
The possession of a Bachelor degree in Philosophy is a must. Essentially, there are universities who offer a Masters open to students with a different undergraduate background. Good foreign language skills, especially in English will give you an advantage.
Upon successful completion you will be awarded with the academic title “Master of Philosophy” (or "Master of Arts" in some cases). The typical study period is four semesters long after which you will have acquired the necessary knowledge for practical problems. You can pursue a career individually with research in a certain topic or look for a position at educational institutions or multinational organizations.
