What the students say
Our master is one of the rarest occasions to acquire a number of tools of contemporary analytic philosophy and an excellent historical preparation with some of the greatest scholars in the world.
Andrea Kimberley Hefti
I discovered philosophy rather late in my life and during my undergraduate years, I fell in love with contemporary Metaphysics. I have never thought that I would have found the perfect follow up programme right here in Lugano!
The MAP offers a unique opportunity to work with many esteemed scholars coming from all around the world. It allows you to have a close interaction with them and to get useful advice about your studies and professional future. I felt really welcomed in Lugano.
At the MAP, I have found not only the perfect place to broaden my philosophical knowledge under the expert guidance of great professors but also, and more importantly, I have found my niche in philosophy. I cannot but strongly advise anyone with an interest in analytic philosophy and willing to work hard to enrol in the programme.
I felt immediately welcomed here in Lugano. The MAP is a great programme if you want to seriously engage yourself in doing research. It provides you with the perfect environment to understand and develop your specific interests since the professors really care about your work and they help you fostering your philosophical growth.
One of the most remarkable aspects of this programme is the diversity of its courses. Here one can find professors and students with both historical and theoretical interests and engage in discussions on every aspect of philosophy. Professors in this programme are leading figures in their respective fields, from the most prestigious universities throughout the world. For me, the first semester was very demanding, but the encouragement from the professors, many hours of individual supervision, and the support from my colleagues helped me to overcome the initial difficulties. Thanks to this constant assistance, even though the programme gets more and more demanding, I find it easier to manage my tasks.
