MA in Philosophy / 1 year / 2 years
Our MAs are often used as preparation for PhD studies at leading universities across the globe. They provide you with a solid grounding in the major areas of philosophy, such as ethics, epistemology and philosophy of mind. Working in small, interactive classes, you will also develop transferable skills like analytical and systematic thinking and reasoning, and you will learn how to analyze complex texts and arguments.
Our program comes in two formats. The one-year program is geared towards candidates with a four-year bachelor’s degree in philosophy, while the twoyear version is for graduates with a three-year bachelor’s degree in philosophy or in a related field. All MA students can also specialize in interdisciplinary certificate programs in Political Thought and Religious Studies at CEU.
