WHO SHOULD APPLY?
The Master’s Program in Philosophy of Science is designed for students from a variety of academic backgrounds. Roughly, our students can be divided into two groups:
1) This program is suited to students who have completed their undergraduate studies in philosophy or a closely related subject (whether as a major or a minor), and wish to expand and deepen their philosophical education, with a special focus on questions in philosophy of science.
2) This program is also aimed towards students with no philosophical training, who have a degree in a subject in, for example, the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, or humanities, which has some sort of philosophical dimension, and who are interested in philosophical questions that go beyond what can typically be addressed from within their respective disciplines. Students might, for example, be interested in probing the theoretical foundations of the field upon which their undergraduate study was focused (its ontological prerequisites, epistemological conditions, concepts, reasoning, methods or practices) or its ethical implications (its social and political effects, prospects, risks, challenges and limits).
